Robotic additive manufacturing
Robotic additive manufacturing (AM) involves mounting a 3D printing system onto a robotic arm. There are many benefits to robotic arm 3D printing, the main one being an increase in design freedom.
This is down to degrees of freedom. While most standard 3D printers offer three axes of movement, robotic AM systems can provide five, six, or even more axes. Thus, they are not limited to printing layers in a single, flat manner. Robotic additive manufacturing systems offer exceptional non-planar 3D printing capabilities; they can create curves and complex overhangs without support structures.
