Re3DTech Case Study

A customer wanted to replace aluminum grippers with carbon fiber 3D printed parts. We worked with the engineer to make straightforward design changes to the drawing. The first design did not allow for the continuous carbon fiber strands to loop around the base (Image 1, left gripper). The redesigned part allows for the proper usage of continuous carbon fiber strands (Image 1, right gripper). The original part flexed where arms meet the body (Image 2). The redesign was a success. We printed the grippers on our Markforged Mark X.
