Video: A morning jog with Boston Dynamics’ 3D printing powered Atlas robot

Clever? Creepy? Or perhaps a healthy dose of both? American robotics company Boston Dynamics has just released a video demonstrating the latest abilities of its Atlas humanoid robot. In the clip, Atlas can be seen jogging, up an incline and on uneven ground, and jumping over a log, all for the purpose search and rescue. Just […]

How Universal Robots powers 24/7 3D printing for production

In the middle of a farm of 160 3D printers, the Universal Robots UR10 works tirelessly to keep production running 24/7. Wirelessly monitored, the robot arm is responsible for loading and unloading build plates, then stacking finished prints onto a conveyor belt. It is Voodoo Manufacturing’s secret weapon for competing with injection molding. Since installing […]

CSAIL Robogami democratizes 3D design and fabrication of robots

The Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is a hub of activity for solutions to change the way people approach design and engineering, In 3D printing, previous projects from the lab include the fabrication of a smart-sensing skin for robots, developing the “Photoshop” of 3D materials, and a voxel based […]

UAntwerp 3D printed Project ASLAN crosses sign language barriers with 3D Hubs

Robotics and 3D printing combine in a thesis project from University of Antwerp masters students Guy Fierens, Stijn Huys and Jasper Slaets. The titled Project ASLAN was developed as a solution to the shortage of sign language interpreters for the Flemish language in Flanders. By cooperating with service bureau 3D Hubs and the European Institute […]

Designing And Building A Robot

Introduction To Robotics And Robot Making 

For a hundred years, robots, automatons or otherwise synthetic assistants have been part of our popular culture. While they’ve mostly been restricted to the silver screen, thanks to increasingly affordable and powerful electronics, making robots has never been easier. Now, if you’ve got the determination and a few bucks to spare, you can design and build a robot to your liking.

Although robotics is more accessible than ever,

3D printing helps bring the underground Crossrail to London

Crossrail, a £14.8 billion project to expand London’s underground train network, is using 3D printing in the construction of its tunnels. Competing alongside leading contractors including SKANSKA, BAM Nuttall and Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering, UK privately owned construction company Laing O’Rourke is using the technology to get the edge on tunnel building. Europe’s largest construction […]

3D printed device from MIT CSAIL shows the possibility of a smart “skin” for robots

As current electronics are easily breakable, researchers are looking to develop a way to make them more flexible, and intuitive. With 3D printing, one project …
