A relatively new and not rather common technique in construction industry is the use of 3D printers to print architectural structures and buildings. Nowadays, parts of the printed object are build in inside environments, where after the parts have to be transported to their desired location, which is very costly and time consuming. A solution...

Additive manufacturing allows material structuring, supporting the fabrication of multiple-level structures or metamaterials. Through the lens of classical stress reduction, nature’s cellular solid structures feature stress-homogenizing nodal topologies. Avian long bones are an example. Research into the mechanics of open cell cellular solids...

Background: In low- and middle-income countries there is a high demand for prosthetic devices. An automatic system, in which hand prostheses are manufactured with 3D printers can potentially offer a solution for patients having a transradial defect in these areas. As part of such a system, a detailed 3D model of the residual limbs is needed. In...

Currently, measuring wear of the insert of knee implants can only be accurately done in vitro. There are yet no accurate in vivo techniques that can capture and deliver data in real time. Therefore, the main objective of the research reported in this thesis was to introduce and validate a polyethylene insert with integrated wear sensors into...

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 graduation project is in cooperation with TU Delft, Tentech BV, Aectual and White Lioness technologies. It aims to investigate the feasibility of using recycled plastics as material for large-scale 3D printing with the 3D printer KamerMaker. In the meantime, a thickness distribution methodology is proposed for taking advantage of the...

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 design of a 3D printed integrated miniature valve to control the air and flow rate in pneumatic soft robotics. The valve is able to control multiple bellows from inside the body of the soft robotic by only using one tube of air supply. The valves are actuated by Shape Memory Alloy actuator wires, named Flexinol....

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...

Repair was once a common act. With increased product diversity and complexity, a scarcity and obsolescence of spare parts is making repair increasingly difficult and economically unviable. The result is an accelerated turnover of manufactured goods, which are more often replaced than repaired. As products are discarded, embedded materials and...

The emerging field of 3D printing has expanded to the fabrication of metallic components during the last decade. Among the most prominent applications is the production of aluminium bronze marine propellers by the Wire+Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) method. This method incorporates a welding system attached to a robotic arm. The final product...

This project is about controlling plastic such that a designer can create 3D art structures of 3 x 3 x 3 meters. The designer and main stakeholder (Tiwánee van der Horst) of this project has just started her own art business. Her inspiration to make art comes from her own graduation project. In this project she wants to convert 2D painting into...

For many years 3D printing has been one of the most exciting promises in future technologies. One of the issues with the penetration of 3D printing technology is the required proficiency with creation software; and the lack of experience in design. This report describes the exploration into a novel means to empower users to create unique design...

Parts of the Southwest Palace of Sennacherib (700 BC), which were located in Nineveh (Iraq), are now destroyed by the ongoing conflict in Iraq and Syria. The palace rooms used to be decorated with numerous Assyrian reliefs. Luckily, digital pictures of the site are available thanks to an Italian expedition in 2002. The goal of this research is...

Magnetic levitation is a recent technology which nowadays is used in high-tech systems. It is developed due to the inherent benefits of these type of setups such as lack of wear, friction and problems due to mechanical phenomenon as play and backlash. Achieving higher accelerations and ultra-precise position control while reducing maintenance. ...
