Abstract: The 3D printing of Bistable structures and their ability to change shape are the main topics of this dissertation study. The project's goal is to manufacture these structures using 3D printing technology, develop a mechanism design for their production, and then demonstrate their capabilities. The notion of Bistable structures, their characteristics, and their applications are introduced in the first section of the study. The design process, including the choice of materials and printing specifications, is then covered, along with the difficulties experienced during the design and printing phases. The mechanical features of the printed structures, such as their strength, durability, and deformation characteristics, are also included in the report. The article also details how several experimental methods were used to demonstrate the Bistable formations' ability to vary their shape. The paper ends with a review of the technology's possible uses and future research directions. The report offers helpful insights for researchers and practitioners in the field of additive manufacturing and acts as a comprehensive reference to the creation of 3D printed Bistable structures.
