Hi and welcome to our weblog!
In the field of Soft Robotics 3D printing is rapidly becoming a more and more interesting tool to create soft actuators. The possibility of 3D printing silicons might prove revolutionary in the field of Soft Robotics.
We will be investigating two new methods of using 3D printing to make soft actuators. First we will investigate to possibilities of directly FDM printing flexible materials using an Ultimaker. Secondly we will look at the possible advantages of using a new technique called UltiCasting. More on these techniques will soon be posted in our weblog.
During the upcoming weeks we will post our research progress and prototypes on this weblog so be sure to follow us if you are interested in our progress and comment if you have questions or feedback!
