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...

Natural reefs are important habitats for a wide range of species. Furthermore, they attenuate waves and thereby protect the leeside, functioning as coastal protection. Many reefs are however eroding or degraded, leading to a loss of these ecosystem services. Artificial reefs can reverse this negative trend. The artificial reefs in this context...

In developing countries amputation surgeries are performed more often than in western countries due to a lack of medical knowledge and the prevalence of illnesses that have been defeated in the developed world. Only 5% of the amputees own a prosthesis because there are distribution and maintenance problems, as well as cultural issues surrounding...

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...

Materials and devices with advanced functionalities often need to include functionalities such as surface features into complex 3D geometries. Precisely controlled bio-nanopatterns, printed electric components and sensors/actuators are all examples of such surface features. However, the vast majority of the refined technologies that are...

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...

Cellular solids are characteristically excellent energy absorbers due to their capacity to store large amounts of energy through compression. A bioinspired design approach identified the Pomelo fruit (Citrus Maximus) as a biological role model for energy absorption. Fruit peels’ biologically most important functions lies in the need to provide...

In this project, the opportunities were investigated when combining shape-memory alloy material with 3D printing technology. This combination has the potential to create objects that are able to move on their own. Shape-memory alloys are as the name suggests material with a Shape-Memory this unique quality makes it possible to program a shape...

The goal is to develop a 3D printed wrist orthesis to replace the traditional plaster type and increases wearing comfort for the patients. It should be a class 1 category medical tool, with limited restrictions. The design should be clean, easy to fit and remove, light, and solid. The result should be a reflection of a clear understanding of 3D...

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...
