3d Printing’s new big thing is coming from MIT. Making buildings
3D printing is in technological era making their footprints more and more powerful and adventures.
Mechanical Engineering PhD defense Mr. Steven Keating at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in August 2016.
In Mr. Steven Keating’s presentation about MIT’s new invention to make 3d printed buildings. According to Mr. Steven’s,” this robot can make building in 14 hours”. This “Digital Construction Platform” — is intended to be self-sufficient, but right now it requires humans to monitor it for safety reasons. In the test, the researchers programmed the prototype to create a dome and used a spray foam commonly used in buildings and homes. The whole system can be powered electrically or with solar panels. “With this process, we can replace one of the key parts of making a building, right now. It could be integrated into a building site tomorrow,” said Steven Keating, co-author of a paper published in the journal “Science Robotics.
“in the future, to have something totally autonomous, that you could send to the moon or Mars or Antarctica, and it would just go out and make these buildings for years,”
