The gecko effect is famous for its smart adhesion, which is achieved by its fractal-like hierarchy from nano scale spatulas to micro scale seta. This paper designs a gecko-inspired receptor system for a three-dimensional printing technology. A fractal oscillator is established and solved for the fractal-like spring system, the experimental results show that any printed objects can be received smoothly without any morphology change.
