Pleurobot:  Improved Version Mimics Salamanders Motion More Accurately

Jun 29, 2016 @ 17:56 | EPFL |  Bio-Inspired researchers are continuously investigating different types of animal locomotion and trying to make such robots that can exactly mimic the natural motions. MIT Cheetah, CMU Snake, UCB Cockroach, Boston Dynamics Dog, Harvard RoboBees, Sydney University CROC and Greogre Washigton University Sea lion inspired robot are some […]

Metallic 3D Printing without Support Material

Metallic 3D Printing without Support Material

May 17, 2016 @ 20:34 |  The current commercially available 3D printing technologies use support material to build the 3D parts. This support material is total waste after part completion and due to use of support material, 3D printing becomes comparatively more costly and time consuming. Now researchers invented new metallic 3D printing technique that […]

New Frontiers in 3D Printing for Soft Robots and Flexible Materials

22 September 2015 |  Novel active mixing and switching printheads enable 3D printing of complex fluids and gels Three dimensional printing is revolutionizing the production of new devices and structures, including soft robots, flexible electronics and engineered tissue replacements, but advances have been challenged by the inherent complexity of integrating multiple materials. Now, breaching the […]

Breakthrough in 3D metal printing

Breakthrough in 3D metal printing

While traditional 3D printing using fused deposition modelling (FDM) techniques becomes evermore commonplace, engineers are looking to develop further 3D printing technologies to widen its application within the manufacturing industry. Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is one of the key areas for 3D printing research, which uses laser beams to project and bind powdered materials, typically […]

MultiFab: Vision-Assisted Multi-Material 3D Printier

Getting of out of box robotics components has always been challenging for the roboticists. With the upcoming of 3D printing era this perception has changed the roboticists were able to get out of self part for making newer and more innovative robots.One of the problem with these printer was the pricing which cost around $250,000 […]

Transparent Glass 3D Printing

Transparent Glass 3D Printing

23 August 2015 | In Robotics, Rapid Prototyping is becoming more common to quickly test and verify the design of robots and its parts. Engineers fabricate prototype model, from three-dimensional computer aided design (CAD) data, using 3D printing, additive manufacturing technology. Existing 3D printing machines use non-transparent plastic material to fabricate parts. But now by using MIT’s […]
