Unsurprisingly, 3D printing is an excellent application for the field of robotics since it gives designers the ability to include new functionality into their designs. Additionally, end customers can modify robots to suit their own requirements.Every day, individuals are extending the realm of possibilities with the use of robotics and 3D printing.
Building robots is made simple thanks to 3D printing, which is fantastic. You can create any combination of elements you can imagine, and you can practically hold them in your hands right away. This makes experimentation and quick prototyping possible. This specific 3D-printed robot is an illustration of that.
Robot 3D printing, often referred to as robotic arm 3D printing and robotic additive manufacturing, combines a multi-axis robotic arm with a 3D printer head that extrudes polymers to provide a considerably more flexible 3D printer than traditional versions.
The robotic arm, with its enormous movement range, opens up a whole new world of creative flexibility in 3D printing and is increasingly employed for huge projects like mould-making, large-scale prototypes, artistic sculpture, architectural parts, furniture, and even rockets.
Because the arm can print from almost any angle, incredibly intricate, curved geometries are possible. Additionally, it offers print sizes up to 30 metres or more, much larger than normal printers!
The Global 3D Printed microrobot market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
New 3D printed robots have been developed by Georgia Institute of Technology researchers. The smallest ant in the world, it is around two millimetres long and was created using two-photon polymerization lithography (TPP). These miniature 3D-printed robots move in response to ultrasound, piezoelectric actuators, vibration, and even small speakers.
Over the past few months, 3D printing on a micro size has become more popular. A new company called Nanofabrica has announced the commercial launch of 3D printing technology with micron precision.
These “micro-bristle-bots” have different vibration response spectra depending on their configurations, so they can be individually controlled by modifying the vibrations. The vertical motion of the micro-bristle-bots is converted into a directional motion by enhancing the bristle-like shape of the legs as they move up and down.
The micro robot’s legs are made with particular angles that enable them to bend and move in a single direction in resonance with the vibration.
