Robotic 3D printers capable of printing buildings design unveiled

May 18, 2017

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers has designed a robotic 3D printer that is capable of printing entire buildings. Called the Digital Construction Platform (DCP), it is engineered like a human hand. The hydraulic robotic arm has tips of precision motion and its attached to a tracked vehicle. The arm-like function directs and controls the construction nozzle to spray insulation of pour concrete and control fabrication machinery. As it is designed to be free-moving it can print about any size. This will make the building process cheaper and will hence lower the overall costs involved. It will also help make customizations easier, optimising the strength and insulation of the building.
