3D printing and robotics in combination works like a charm


Recommended Posts

Posted · 3D printing and robotics in combination works like a charm

I am robotics guy, and I find out that 3D printing will have a huge impact on robotics.

Engineers at the University of California have made a robot, and all parts are printed by a 3d printer.

An era of soft robots started!

    It already has in many ways. Research the impact 3D printing has had on prosthetics. It is a wonderful thing to research and find.

    Have a blast with it!! I know I am and I am not up to the point of making my own robotics of any kind. I am just now figuring tolerances and such in a realistic (vs theoretica) point of view to insert tubes, cavities and such for parts, wiring and other nifty things.

    There is nothing like it. :)

    Oh, and you are in the right place....so many people with just plain ol' good info and willing to share and help.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
