What are some potential applications for multi-material robots?
A 3D printer that makes multi-material robots is an innovative technology that allows for creating of robots with complex and diverse designs. By using a 3D printer to print multi-material robots, engineers and designers can create robots with soft and rigid parts, sensors, and other components in one printing process.
According to NATURE, “3D printers can create a huge variety of shapes, usually deposited layer by layer using several materials.”
