Previous results demonstrated piezoelectricity in 3D printed PVDF, however these results showed near undetectable signal levels and inconsistent piezoelectric behavior. This paper presents far improved sensor performance, and the first characterization of the piezoelectric properties of 3D printed PVDF. A value for d33 of 0.36 ± 0.13 pC/N was discovered for… CONTINUE READING
