    Abstract

    This report details the work undertaken with the end goal of creating a machine capable of additive manufacturing of functional components using various materials. The research focuses on the manufacture of functional electro-mechanical components. This report includes a literature review additive manufacturing technologies and a summary of the research undertaken thus far. The work focused on enabling the RepRap machine to utilise multiple materials using the Robocasting and Fused Filament Fabrication processes. This resulted in the manufacture of several multiple material components. Note: This report is a summary of the MPhil to PhD transfer report submitted by Rhys Owen Jones in October 2010.
