3D printing in the world of construction
3D printing has already begun to take its first steps and it seems that its ascension will be unstoppable in the construction industry. This technology allows, apart from constructing actual models faithful to the final construction, to print whole walls, bricks, and even insulating materials.
Also, 3D printing can process materials such as different mortars and concrete, widely used and demanded today.
The most prominent construction robot today is “Hadrian”, created by the Australian, Mark Pivac. Hadrian is able to place 1000 bricks per hour, which is the equivalent of building a house in 2 days!
This machine is capable of calculating the amount of materials required by itself, is giving us a lot to talk about, and points to it being one of the most revolutionary inventions in the construction industry.
