Do You Know Where Your Robot Is? Check 3D Printing!

Category Applications

What could be better than a mechanical device taking on repetitive, mundane tasks for us humans?  2001: A Space Odyssey’s HAL 9000 aside, robotics have become a positive force in today’s society, improving everything from manufacturing to space exploration. However, this innovation stems into robotics itself -  robots are improving just about every shape and form, becoming more efficient and effective, with the help of additive manufacturing.

Whether it’s creating functional prototypes to quickly field test designs or producing end-use parts, additive manufacturing is making robotics more accessible, more customizable, and easier to manufacture. For recent earthly examples, consider Intel’s 3D printed humanoid robot named Jimmy, or Jarvis, designed by high school students, or industrial robotic arms used at Thogus. 

You might also look to the heavens as NASA engineers explore the possibility of using 3D printing robots in space to build lunar bases.
