3D Printing Fiberglass Composites With Robotics

March 27, 2017

3D Printing and Robotic Arms seem to be a perfect marriage these days.  Whether 3D printing them or using Robotic Arms to swap out printing bed in a 3D Printing Farm, robotics and 3D Printing technologies have been working side-by-side.  In Italy at the Politecnico di Milano, a group of architects and engineers introduced their creation, Atropos: a six-axis robotic arm that can print continuous fiber composites. The robotic arm was developed by +Lab, the 3D Printing lab at the Politecnico, which through a technology known as Continuous Fiber Composites Smart Manufacturing, has the potential to create large, complex structures to aid the design and construction process.
