Mobile Construction Robot 3D Prints a Temporary Architectural Installation Out of Loose Stones and Twine

Mobile Construction Robot 3D Prints a Temporary Architectural Installation Out of Loose Stones and Twine

While plastic is used often in 3D printing, stronger materials are required for architecture and construction applications, such as brick, concrete, and cement. But while we’ve seen stone-filled PLA filaments, rocks and stones aren’t often used as raw 3D printing materials…at least not yet. But three years ago, the Self-Assembly Lab at MIT and Gramazio Kohler Research of ETH […]
