A robot with a working hydraulics was printed on a 3D printer

На 3D-принтере напечатали робота с работающей гидравликой (видео) Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) introduced a new 3D printing technology that allows you to immediately use various types of materials at the printing stage of an object: solid, elastic and liquid. The proposed new process leads to a reduction in the number of operations that are necessary for further assembly of the created product. In the printing process, different nozzles are used, which print with different types of materials, which allows you to immediately print a device with solid and flexible elements and immediately fill in the necessary fluid. As an example, engineers presented a hydraulic six-legged robot, which is fully printed using the new technique on a 3D printer. Unprinted parts are just the battery and motor. The motor rotates the crankshaft, which pumps liquid under pressure into the limbs of the robot. This pressure acts as a mechanical force that sets the robot in motion. Sample weighing 680 gr. and 15 cm long was printed in 22 hours. What does it mean? 8caa42f5a9df53968033bf99609e44f6
