Robot joints from a 3D printer
Dental fillings, spare parts and prostheses – the range of products that are made with 3D printers is growing. These parts are usually made from just one material. In order to open up more application areas for ‘printed’ products, 3D printers are being developed that combine different materials. In the DIMAP research project, which is funded by the EU with around six million euros, the aim is to design and print robot joints made of different materials.
