CAD/CAM Driven Printer for 3D-Printed Electronics

The presenter discussed how they were able to build the first 5-axis 3D-printed electronic tool by integrating nine hardware and software components: Konica-Minolta Range 7 3D laser scanner, Keyence laser distance sensor, Rapidform XOR3 software, Creo 3.0 Parametric, Creo 3.0 Manufacturing, Haas OM2A CNC Office Mill, Norson/EFD dispenser/print head and controller and Spectra Physics sintering laser. The presenter shared why the Creo product was the main key that made this printing tool integration possible. And with the Creo Manufacturing tool loaded with so many features, all types of printing was done seamlessly with minimum effort. From this effort, the presenter demonstrated how Creo Parametric and Creo Manufacturing can be the standard printing software for the 3D-printed electronics field by doing both substractive and additive manufacturing. Finally, the presenter demonstrated how Creo software and Haas CNC can be used as a pick-and-place machine to place electrical component on the finished 3D-printed electronics substrate.
