The project revolves around how the compliant mechanisms are redefining the design of our products which we us in our day to day life. All these years we have been building our products by combining or joining separately manufactured components to make a single component that satisfies our purpose. In this type of manufacturing we often compromise on efficiency and performance due to incapability, cost of manufacturing. The rise in the industry of additive manufacturing due to 3D printing has a major contribution in helping the manufacturing of compliant mechanism. Compliant mechanisms gain some or all of their motion from the relative flexibility of their joints rather than rigid body only. Our project elaborates on how different materials affect the performance of the fully compliant plier like the force, stress, deformation, torque and their mathematical calculations are also shown. The topological path model and the finite element analysis carried out also speaks about how the mechanism will be better than the conventional plier.
