3D printing using a Mitsubishi Electric 7-axis robot

3D printing using a Mitsubishi Electric 7-axis robot

A project at the Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR) is looking at 3D printing from a totally different angle – where the emphasis is placed on meaningful expression, rather than the accurate reproduction of digital data. A flexible Mitsubishi Electric MELFA RV-7FLM articulated arm industrial robot is at the centre of the project. Additive […]
