Abstract

We demonstrate the application of self-assembly system for human manufacturing processes at meso- and macroscale in order to pursue and expand the engineering applicability. First, we implemented a prototype referred to as self-assembly printer which can generate a dynamic, transformable, two-dimensional molding and reuse the units that compose the printed objects. Secondly, noteworthy technological components to explain our prototype system is introduced in this paper. Lastly, some potential application based on the system such as "Self-Assembly Electronic Circuit (SAEC)" is implemented and proposed. As a result of these researches, our system attains scalability and alleviates the need for complex and accurate movements of assembler in traditional manufacturing system.
