To use the 3D printed mold to make an actuator the general method for making a two parts PneuNets actuator is followed:
- A top part is cast in the mold
- A bottom part is made (for these molds, it can be cut from a piece of silicone coated fabric)
- The two parts are glued together with uncured silicone
- Tubing is attached
More detailed instructions for performing these steps can be found in the documentation of the lasercut PneuNets molds in the Soft Robotics Toolkit.
