Additive Layer Manufacturing is offering tremendous oportunities for manufacturing. Many complex structures, which could not be manufactured by conventional methods can be produced additive. This paper gives three examples of how additive manufacturing can be used to built smart structures with integrated actuators and sensors. The integration of piezoceramic actuators into FDM and SLM processes is described as well as the design of structures with integrated pneumatic actuators printed with the PolyJet method.
