3D printing and origami

3D printing and origami. According to Arnav Wagh, “he created ‘FLXO’ as a tool to explore soft-robotics these four actuators work is inspired by origami. They work as soft engines for a given mechanism. They are entirely 3D printed on a conventional desktop printer.”

3D printed resistive soft sensors

Posted on Updated on

According to related publications from Shih B., Christianson C., Gillespie K., Lee S., Mayeda J., Huo Z., Tolley M. T. (2019), “Design considerations for 3D printed, soft, multi-material resistive sensors for soft robotics. Frontiers in Robotics and AISubmersible robots are finding ever-increasing uses in search and rescue, environmental monitoring, and defense applications. Artificial muscles made out of dielectric elastomer actuators (DEAs) provide an attractive choice for driving submersible robotics based on their high energy density, lightweight, and efficiency. One challenge for most DEAs is that that they require conductive electrodes that are made out of materials that are challenging to the pattern, opaque, and/or add stiffness to the devices.”
