This thesis focuses on the utilisation of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies for the production of accordions. The goal is to reduce the man hours required in the production and repair of the instrument. The client, Pigini Nederland, currently produces a small accordion for children and adults: the MiniMouse. This instrument is sold for...

This thesis investigated if Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), a 3D printing technique, could be used in a simulated on-orbit environment. A modified FFF printer was exposed to a vacuum environment and fabricated a variety of components from polycarbonate filament. The printer and its subsystems were evaluated for functionality in the vacuum...

Sandy soils are characterized by negligible cohesion (compared to clay) and limited drainage capacity (compared to gravel), which makes these soils susceptible to excess pore (water) pressure accumulation induced by short term dynamic loading cycles. Pile driving subjects the soil to such type of dynamic loading. Accumulation of excess pore...

To solve the problem of optimal control for nonlinear system, Actor Critic Designs (ACD) can be utilized which use the concept of Reinforcement learning (RL) and function approximators such as Neural networks (NN). Traditional ACD methods require a model NN that needs to be trained offline. Recently, research focus has been shifted to model-free...

In order to save weight and reduce the impact on the environment, the aerospace industry keeps searching for strong and lightweight materials to reduce fuel consumption. A relatively new manufacturing technique made it possible to print nylon, reinforced with continuous unidirectional carbon fibres on a layer-by-layer basis and praised itself...

This master thesis discusses the development of a hybrid manufacturing system that combines multi-material 3D-printing with silicone casting. The parties involved in this project were soft robotics research group at the University of Technology Delft and Ultimaker. Ultimaker served an advisory role and helped in providing the needed hardware....

Since the expiration of the FDM printing patent by Stratasys in 2009, Fused Deposition Modeling(FDM) printing has taken a large step towards accessible consumer 3D printing. Also, more knowledge is sought in the process of FDM printing and optimizing quality as the layer by layer deposition inevitable results in poor surface quality. This study...

ten Cate, W.J.A. (author)
This graduation project was started on the observation that most orthopaedic companies seem to be still far away from producing 3D printed sockets for customers. Research into manual and digital manufacturing methods resulted in an overview of the possibilities for integrating digital tools into the socket production process. Together with the...

Additive Manufacturing technology has gained a significant amount of interest in both industry and academia in recent years. Current research, though, is still mainly focused on the printing of structural components. In the future there will be a need for smart materials to come to fully integrated components. These smart materials include...

Rossing, L. (author)
Ultimaker produces desktop Fused Deposit Modelling (FDM) 3D printers. One downfall of the FDM technology is that it is relatively slow in producing solid parts, compared to other rapid prototyping techniques. Larger volumes increase the printing time exponentially. This project started off with a unique idea to replace the internal volume with a...

At this point in time, 3D-printing techniques in general, but especially applied for the building industry, still are in a phase of early experiments. One of the experimental attempts is to print a full-scale, three-story high, house in Amsterdam, using an up scaled version of a FDM-printer that is able to print blocks of 1.8 x 1.8 x 3.0 meters...
