3D printing technology, as a material manufacturing technology, is widely used in film, education, mechanical design, industrial design, medical, aviation, mechanical automation and other fields, in the process of education and mechanical design, 3D printing technology show extraordinary ability. Through this 3D printing-based manufacturing method, a cam-driven handling manipulator suitable for teaching is developed and designed. The reciprocating motion of the manipulator is carried out by the joint action of the two cams, and the subsequent connecting rod mechanism makes the manipulator With the steering function, using SolidWorks simulation analysis, the impact of smaller institutions, better stability, to meet the design requirements, in order to adapt to teaching use, part of the box using plexiglass material, making the entire design can be appreciated.
