3D Printing Applications Robotics: A New Direction in Animatronics
Very few people actually think about the technologies, the resources and the man hours needed to build a robot that walks, responds and performs certain actions. However, 3D printing has actually been successful in slashing down the price of production. Engineering robots is now easier and cheaper, thanks to futuristic 3d printing applications robotics technologies. We at The 3D Shape offer bespoke printing and rapid prototyping solutions to students and researchers of robotics. We make robot arms, legs and other body parts and snap them together to make full-scale robots. The servo controlled and connected parts can be controlled by a pantheon of buttons. We also integrate the circuit to make robot making and body parts assembling for the professionals and scholars of robotics.
3D Printing Applications Robotics: The Future Ahead
Though 3D printing and robotics are two semantically distinct phrases, the two will possibly merge, or at least interweave with each other to form the pixels of a technological revolution not very far ahead. We at The 3D Shape have always believed that robotics and 3D printing complement each other and we feel proud every time we collaborate with a robotics training or research institute. Our 3D printing based robots are widely used in colleges and universities for demo purposes and robotics students can largely benefit by analyzing the form factors and functional aspects of the 3D printed robots from different perspectives. This actually allows them to get hands-on training and understand the basics of robotics very well. Not only this, our 3d printing applications robotics are also instrumental in research and innovation in the field of robotics. Large-scale industrial application of 3D printed robots is still very limited and we are still busy at our labs making really big robots using latest 3D printing technologies.
3D Printing Applications Robotics: Technologies and Materials in Use
We build 3d printing applications robotics with detail resin, polyamide and also transparent plastic in some cases. We also use gold, silver and other metals to build the connectors of robot body parts. We use Selective Laser Sintering for low-volume production of 3D parts are joined together to bring a robot to ‘life’. It’s an additive manufacturing layer technology that involves high-power laser and software applications that help us un converting 2D drawings (mostly in CAD) to compatible formats. The 3D Shape aims to play a key role in the 3D printing robotics market which is gradually expanding in Dubai/GCC/UAE.
