Soft structures with complex range of motion lead to strong interest in applying devices like authors and manipulators. A controlled multi directional soft cylindrical actuator is fabricated in a modular way using multilayer composite of polyurethane, graphene, shape memory alloy and shape memory polymer. The modular fabrication techniques is used step by step mainly includes FDM based 3D printing, dip coating, and UV curing. A vector based mathematical approach is used to control the actuator for the multi-directional deformations. A scaled version of human artery is 3D printed using a semitransparent material to test the actuator’s mult-directional movement. . It is believed that fabricated actuator might enhance the conventional actuators used in the industrial and medical applications.
