Re: FEA on Soft Structures

Chris,

Sorry for the late reply, I've been looking into my possible resources on the subject. Besides your earlier post, is there anything else to note regarding the problems you are experiencing? Let me know.

Thanks,
Aidan

Hi Chris,

Have you made any progress on your simulation? I may be able to put you in contact with someone at the Soft Robotics Toolkit (like Matt had said).

Re: An educational soft robot

Hi Petter, This is fantastic work! Compliments to the whole SoftMod team for creating this. There is a lot about this project that is really fascinating and cool. I'm quite fond of the idea of modular soft robotics, and I think the platform you've developed for controlling and testing soft pneumatic...

Re: FEA on Soft Structures

Hi, I do not have much experience with FEA, but many researchers use Simulia from Dassault Systèmes. The Soft Robotics Toolkit has quite a bit of documentation regarding the modeling of soft robots with FEA. Here's an example: http://softroboticstoolkit.com/book/pneunets-modeling I hope this was hel...

Known Glaucus Issues and Fixes

These are some common problems that we have heard from people who have made Glaucuses and possible solutions to said problems. Smooth-sil 935 is mixed by weight and not by volume -Overly thick smooth-sil causes uneven castings for the bathtub tooling, making even clamping pressure difficult The mold...

Re: Soft Robotics Electronics Module

Right now I'm entering it in the Soft Robotics Toolkit. Once that's done, I'll be uploading it to Thingiverse, Youmagine, and maybe some other places.

Soft Robotics Electronics Module

Hi, This is a project I've been working on for a month or so. I was getting annoyed with testing and demonstrating my soft robotics actuators with syringes, so I built a portable, compact, simple solution to controlling pneumatic actuators. It's called the Soft Robotics Electronics Module. You can s...

PneuNets Extending Actuator

This is less of a full soft robot than it is just a "component" to one. If you're familiar with the Soft Robotics Toolkit (softroboticstoolkit.com), then chances are you're familiar with the PneuNets Bending Actuator, which is a soft robotic "component" that, as it's name implies, bends. I've taken ...
