We present a printer that builds functional three-dimensional structures by reversible assembly of a discrete set of components, “digital materials”. This approach uses the components rather than a control system to impose the spatial and functional constraints. Printing can be performed as a parallel rather than a linear process. The printing process is reversible for re-use of the pieces or for error correction at any point in the object's life. Error detection, error-reduction and error-tolerance during assembly allows for reliable, high throughput printing. We are presenting development approaches to such a printing device.

  • For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.

    Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
