3D URM printing from composite

3D URM printing from composite
URM (curvature): modification and production of the connecting member, which is inserted between the URM 02 modules. The original design of the component made of duralumin was reworked due to the need to reduce weight and improve the mechanical properties of a robotic manipulator assembled from URM 02 modules. The newly designed curvature is made of composite materials, the plastic matrix is reinforced with continuous carbon fiber, which makes the resulting product significantly lighter than the duralumin version, it is made of one piece of material which ensures higher rigidity of the component and the whole module assembly. Production takes place on the state-of-the-art Markforged Mark Two 3D printer. SolidWorks and Eiger CAD programs were used for editing.
