Origami inspires development of 3D printed TWISTER robots at Case Western Reserve

As 3D printing technology expands the range of possible structures and functions for robotics, soft robotics in particular is starting to get creative with its designs. Origami is one source of inspiration that engineers keep coming back to, and a new 3D printed robotics project based on the ancient Japanese folding art was recently developed by a team of researchers at Ohio’s Case Western Reserve University. The project was led by Kiju Lee, the Nord Distinguished Assistant Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at CWRU, and her lab. Lee’s team moved from inital trials using paper robots to the […]
