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.
The DOBOT Magician is a multifunctional desktop robotic arm that is designed for practical training education. Review the specs here.
Researchers from the University of Minnesota built a unique 3D printer which can print a tactile sensor directly onto your hand.
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.
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.
Airbus is using artificial intelligence from IBM to create an AI robot that will live on the International Space Station. This 3D printed mission and flight assistance system is called the Crew Interactive Mobile Companion, also known as CIMON.
Researchers have developed a 3D printed robot that attaches itself to shark skin underwater, enabling improved studying of marine creatures.
Pilot Labs has created Zeus, a pint-sized fighter robot that is capable of generating 25kg (55lbs) of force in a single punch.
German company Nanoscribe is a world leader in "nanofabrication", offering applications for medicine thanks to minuscule printing properties.
TacTip is an open-source 3D printed artificial fingertip that can 'feel', and has won the Harvard international Soft Robotics competition.
The build area is a difficult thing to improve on in 3D printers. Maintaining accuracy over a large area is a challenge, and as a result, larger machines are expensive and complex. But what if, instead of one big machine, you had many small, mobile robots getting the job done?
During an oceanographic research cruise to a remote region of the Pacific Ocean, Harvard researchers used 3D printed soft robotic manipulators to investigate fragile deep-sea organisms.
A designer has developed a 3D printed robot that can auto-adjust its height to maneuver a wide range of spaces.
