The goal of this project was to create a hardware and software platform for performing 5-axis additive manufacturing. The 5-axis 3D printer translated in the x-, y-, and z-axes, and rotated in the a- and b-axes. Although the hardware printed using fused deposition modeling (FDM), the platform was adaptable to a variety of deposition systems such as cold spray. The software converted a 3D model into 5-axis instructions for the printer, with no further user input. This software made 5-axis 3D printing, previously a niche research area, accessible to anyone with a 3D object file.
