Two years ago, we presented a toolchain to design and manufacture 3D electronic circuits, integrated into FDM-printed parts.
This talk is a follow-up report on the progress of the ongoing research, focusing on three topics:
- An algorithm for 3D wire routing in complex shaped objects under consideration of FMD process parameters.
- Optical documentation of the build process and approaches for automatic defect detection.
- Demonstration of first results.
The presentation aims to convey an impression of what is currently possible with this technology and spark a discussion on future research questions.
