Institut für Dynamik und Schwingungen (IDS) of Leibniz Universität Hannover is one of the project partners of the CO-VERSATILE project. Within the framework of this project, IDS develops a methodology to produce functional components with surface texturing on 3D printers, which can be used as prototypes or spare parts. The challenge is to produce microstructures at the resolution limit of the printing processes available today in sufficient reproduction quality, which, for example, achieve desired friction properties or - in contact with the skin - leading to a pleasant wearing sensation. Both are being investigated in the project on the basis of mouth-nose coverings with exchangeable FFP2 filters using 3D free-form surfaces.
