The present work has investigated the production of 3D printed parts for the incorporation of electronic components. The initial efforts have concentrated on studying an overmolding process on rigid and flexible Stereolithography (SLA) printed parts to produce encapsulated electronic structures. Here, the incorporation of a microcontroller, and a chemical sensor based on functionalized single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) has resulted in the detection of hazardous gases. In this work, the electrical connections across the printed platform has been performed using an Optomec 3D printer. Additionally, distinctive nanoparticles have been incorporated into the printed structures in order to induce an authentication background. This fingerprint framework has been investigated on clear as well as opaque printed parts. Lastly, an algorithm imaging software is being used as the screening tool for detecting these unclonable parts.
