One of the main goals of this project, is to make it low-cost so people all over the world can afford it. 3D printing technology is essential for rapid prototyping and for reducing costs.

After several hours of 3D printing, right knee parts for our robotic exoskeleton prototype are ready.

We used PETG material for higher stiffness.

Here's a video of the right knee efector in layer mode before printing the piece:

And here, a picture of the 3D printed parts:

What's next? Mechanical assembly and tests.
