There are numerous 3D printing methods - each with unique attributes and limitations. There are likewise numerous end-use applications for each method. One such application discussed herein is the ability to manufacture complete and functional additive manufacturing autonomous machines. These machines are made in a single-build with no post-build assembly or added mass. These devices can store and expend internal energy to perform useful functions. While presently only mechanical in design, future materials and machine capabilities will enable the creation of highly complex single-build electromechanical devices.. This paper defines a specific type of single-build autonomous machine termed Addimata and describes key components of such devices. A selection of demonstrated designs are presented and described that utilize commonly available 3D printing processes and materials.

More about this publication?
  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
