Using 3D printing technologies for robot tooling.
- Zero inventory
- Part count reduction
- Previous developments using CNC:
3D printed Vacuum gripper structure
Just the structure.
Originally printed in an Makerbot Replicator X2.
Also prototypes were printed in a Stratasys UPrint and in a Reprap Prusa i3
We put our grippers under the hardest situation: Student labworks
Example of part printed in ABS using a Prusa i3
Unibody 3D printed Vacuum gripper
Future: Self-tooling robots
