Title: In-Situ Printing of Conductive Polylactic Acid (cPLA) Strain Sensors Embedded into Additively Manufactured Parts using Fused Deposition Modeling

Abstract

Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology has been around for decades, but until recently, machines have been expensive, relatively large, and not available to most institutions. Increased technological advances in 3D printing and awareness throughout industry, universities, and even hobbyists has increased demand to substitute AM parts in place of traditionally manufactured (subtractive) designs; however, there is a large variability of part quality and mechanical behavior due to the inherent printing process, which must be understood before AM parts are used for load bearing and structural design.
