Tiivistelmä

This paper introduces a new method for creating a flexible antenna using additive manufacturing for the construction of the substrate. Two substrates were created using a 3D multi-material polymer printer. These substrates were composed using different ratios of the two materials supported by the printer. Planar monopole antennas with a bevel were placed on top of these substrates to form flexible antennas. This paper demonstrates a quick way to create antennas that can be used on non-rigid structures.
