We don’t just make robots at OhmniLabs for the sake of making robots. We build robots to connect people — to bring people closer together. We’re using cutting-edge technology not just to innovate (though innovation is crucial to what we do), but to figure out how we can take care of each other in new and better ways. It’s not about the machines — it’s about the impact the machines have on people. That’s why…

Additive manufacturing using commercially available 3D printers gives us the ability to quickly produce and iterate our designs. Since we are using these end use products, it is critical to understand the consequences of using such machines and associated materials. This week, we focused on understanding the effect temperature has on two types of common 3D printing filaments, PLA and PETG. PLA (Polylactic Acid) and ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) filaments are the most popular forms…
