Seminar Description

Recently, the use of 3D-printing technology for the manufacturing of sensors is gaining increasingly interest in the field of sensor fabrication technology. 3D printing provides the fabrication of complex geometric forms along with combining of selected functional components into any configuration. The most popular materials, in this case, are polymers, metals, ceramics and composites. This project is about designing and printing of an orientation sensor via FDM printer system to explore the potential of additive manufacturing technique for the fabrication of sensors with higher efficiency.
