In this work, additive manufacturing of MRI coils by selectively electroplating a conductive polymer is demonstrated, enabling the fabrication of complex coil geometries with high accuracy and reproducibility. Using a low-cost multi-material FDM 3D printer, deposition of insulating and conductive elements has been achieved in a single process, followed by straightforward electroplating. The proposed approach is demonstrated by an example of a wrist coil, including in-vivo imaging at 3T.
