Hi and welcome on our weblog!
We are Victor, Joost, Yasmine and Marc and will be doing a project in Soft robotics as part of our minor Advanced Prototyping for the next few weeks.
Our task is to help Rob Scharff in his research in flexible 3D printing in combination with pneumatic sensors.
The Connex printer at IDE now offers the possibility to print combinations of rigid and flexible materials.
It creates a lot of new opportunities to enrich the functionality of 3D-printed soft robots which is something we have to explore.
During the upcoming four weeks we will be posting our research process and prototypes on this weblog.
