New Publication – Additive Manufacture of Composite Soft Pneumatic Actuators

A new paper from the Medical Device Design Group entitled Additive Manufacture of Composite Soft Pneumatic Actuators has been published in Soft Robotics. In the article, Oisín Byrne et al. describe a direct additive manufacturing method for composite material soft pneumatic actuators that are capable of performing a range of programmable motions using an affordable, open-source, desktop three-dimensional (3D) printer.
