KUKA, the Chinese-German industrial manufacturing company, creates specialist robotics by using 3D printing technologies. In collaboration with MakerBot 3D printers, KUKA develops robotic arms which are used across a variety of industries.
Want to build your own custom robot with no screws attached? The 3D printed SMARS modular robot is the perfect project for beginners and seasoned makers who want a quick and easy introduction to the world of robotics.
A designer has developed a 3D printed robot that can auto-adjust its height to maneuver a wide range of spaces.
The VP of Engineering at Boston Dynamics visits a small town in Germany to explain how 3D printing and fluid power contributed to dramatic weight savings and power efficiency in the latest generation of their Atlas humanoid robot.
Researchers from Harvard University have developed a 3D printing platform for creating soft robotic systems embedded with sensors. The team uses a technique developed in the lab of Jennifer Lewis to 3D print organic ionic liquid-based conductive ink within soft elastomer matrices.
After studying the mechanisms of invertebrates in nature, U.S. Army researchers have developed 3D printed soft robotics that can traverse difficult landscapes and squeeze into crowded spaces.
