The purpose of this project is to create a way to prototype antennas with complex geometries that cannot be made on standard machining equipment. We are looking at a fused deposition modeling process which would allow us to use a plastic filled with a conductive metal powder to build the prototype layer by layer. We are also designing and machining a special finger for a finger brake that would allow for a specific geometry to be created on standard equipment. Both of these processes will be tested in order to determine the conductivity and other properties of the prototypes.
