Battle bots in action

3D Printing Battle Bot Victory

Battle bots use an enormous amount of unique parts to maintain specific weight requirements and toughness. It’s often complex for bot designers to attain parts like these without spending a lot of money.  With the Markforged Enterprise 3D printer, this is easily achievable.  In combat bot competitions 3D printing onyx, carbon fiber and kevlar proved to be very successful for designers.  It was easy for them to print, test and try again a number of times before perfecting their [...]

Robotics Industries Discover 3D Printing Advantages

Industry continuously looks for ways to improve processes, save money and decrease manufacturing and design and development cycle time. Robotics are used in many industries for various applications across the world. NASA uses robots for exploration and they require specific materials that will handle different environments. In education, students in robotics classes build robots using PLA and ABS, but the parts are too brittle and fall apart easily.  Building robots require customizable parts that will be able to withstand abrasion [...]
