When it comes to additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, you would like to think you’ve seen it all. Check out this week’s video to watch 5 things you’d never guess were 3D printed.

igus self-lubricating and maintenance free technologies and components can already be found in most assembly kits and blueprints for 3D printers. This is because tribologically optimised motion plastic materials enable developers to improve their 3D printer technology while also reducing costs.

The most commonly used products are drylin linear and shaft guide systems with leadscrew technology and energy supply systems with low installation heights and small bending radii. Through the igus readychain service, complete system solutions that are delivered ready-to-install are also possible, comprising micro e-chains, chainflex solutions and motorised linear axes.
