#3Dprinting

The first 3D-printed robots made of both solids and liquids are also built in a single step: no assembly required. These hydraulically actuated robots are made using a modified, commercially available 3D printer. The researchers that dreamed up this technique call it "printable hydraulics," and invented it to reduce the time and labor involved in making simple robots. Led by Daniela Rus, director of MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), the team published their work in a paper available on MIT's website. They will also present the paper at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) in Stockholm, May 16-20, 2016. This hexapod robot with all its mechanical parts was 3D printed in a single step using liquid and solid materials on a modified, commercially available 3D printer. To propel the robot, six sets of "bellows" ...
