Functograph: Scientists build production robots from cheap 3D printers

The robot-built and functographed by a team of meiji university tokyo can not only print individual parts such as toothbraders, levers or retail parts, but also assemble them fully automatically to a finished machine. The robot is even fahig to use the so built machine.

The coffee muple assembled by the functograph is also served by the robot.

This is possible on the one hand through specially manufactured mounting tools, which can be attached to the printhead of the creality printer, and with which the printed parts are recorded, can be positioned and thus can be converted together. These tools are software control, so that the optimal, as well as 3D-printed manipulator is also available for more complicated transgrets, which is also available.

The printer can also separate the printing parts of stutus structures, so that even more complicated parts are usable with overhanges without a human being needs to intervene.

The team presented the skills of the functograph during assembly of a coffee maple, a toy car and a sandwich maker.
