Use Cases

Re-Imagine Additive Manufacturing

Possibilities made endless with concurrent multimaterial 3D printing


Discover how 3D printing of planar and non-planar mechatronic electronic designs provide new ways to solve traditional development challenges and is ramping up to manufacturing in the Industry 4.0 era.

Arduino boards

Arduino boards can be used as the brains behind almost any electronics projects by both hobbyists and experts, due to its open-source code and hardware.

However, while  conceptual design may be a breeze, the outsourced production process of customized Arduino prototypes may involve design mistakes that require multiple iterations. 

With Nano Dimension's DragonFly Pro 3D Printer for electronics, printing a functional Arduino prototype or more complex multilayer Printed Circuit Board prototypes in-house, can now be as simple as creating the design itself.

Learn more via our use case below.

Robots with Functional PCBs

By combining conventional additive manufacturing of mechanical components with 3D printing of electronics, robotics engineers are now able to add and validate new functionality and customization in their designs. 

As a proof of concept, Nano Dimension created an Arduino-based robot with its electrical components 3D printed on Nano Dimension's DragonFly Pro 3D printer.

In the race to develop new and differentiated electronic products, electromagnets can be an important game changer due to their functionality, versatility and potential for customization. They are important components of a wide range of devices from antennas, touch sensors, generators and more.

With the DragonFly Pro 3D printer's ability to make rapid prototyping affordable, limitless electromagnet designs can be created to accommodate specific project needs and enable greater precision. Learn more about how this process works in the use case below.

Molded Interconnect Devices

Molded Interconnect Devices (MIDs) provide for a high degree of design flexibility and potential for miniaturization, since conductive wires are built directly onto dielectric frames, instead of being enclosed within an insulating structure.

With the DragonFly Pro 3D printer’s ability to print both dielectric and conductive inks concurrently, not only is production time kept low, but conductive traces can now be printed within the insulating materials.

Read more about the benefits of enabling such design strategies in the link below.

Embedded Components

To meet the demand for product miniaturization and increased functionality, designers are increasingly using components such as resistors, capacitors, sensors, LEDs and other functional electronics. This drastically increases the demand for real-estate on the surface of printed circuit boards (PCBs)

Not if these components can be embedded within the PCBs themselves. Learn more about why the DragonFly Pro 3D Printer is the best tool for producing embedded PCBs via the use case below.
