The combination of two rapidly evolving technologies such as additive manufacturing technology and robotics opens up a wide potential for solving new production tasks. In advance, several challenges need to be addressed in order to intensify the possibilities for developing the combination of these technologies. The aim of the article is to point out the possibility of designing a simple universal printing system for the collaborative robot UR5 with an orientation on the need to implement 3D printing. The solution proposed in this way makes it possible to simplify the design of the movements to reduce any further structural modifications and also to reduce the potential mechanical deficiencies of the structure of the printing device.


Keywords –3D printing, UR5 collaborative robot, robot programing, universal printing system.
