3D Printing, robots and construction

3D Printing can allow you to adapt and optimize designs for robotic applications based on your specific needs. The additive processing offers clear advantages in a wide range of sectors.
One of the main beneficiaries of Robotic 3D printing is the construction sector, to print a variety of materials in 3D, several construction companies have resorted to industrial robotic arms.
Much of the necessary knowledge so that this technology works comes from the design phase in construction.
The technology underlying 3D printing has been questioned on numerous occasions. However, it has become more relevant as a result of progress in technology itself, which allows the production of a three-dimensional object overlapping consecutive layers of material.
This method of construction is extremely adaptable and can be used to build specific components of the project, as well as, complex structures living space, offices, bridges, walls, modular structures, reinforcement molds, etc.
The integration of 3D printing technology is less challenging because the industry already has experience with computer-assisted manufacturing and continues to grow in the construction sector.
A 3D printer receives information about what you need to print from a CAD or BIM program, and the machines begin to incorporate the material levels according to the recommendations. Combining materials such as sand, fiber, concrete.
According to a Research and Markets survey, the advance of 3D printing has been so positive in the last decade that its value in the construction market is expected to reach USD $ 1,034,096.7 thousand for 2028. Between 2021 and 2028, this indicates 91.5 percent increased from its annual compound growth rate.
Among the many advantages of Robotic 3D printing is found:
3D printing allows the creation of prototypes significantly faster than traditional production processes as CNC. Saving time.
The speed of processes is equivalent to less money spent, and a great design equals less costs for the corporation instead of wasting money in trial and error.
Buying 3D printing equipment can be expensive, subcontracting your project to a 3D printing service provider can save you money.
3D printing technology is frequently used to illustrate design concepts by producing very detailed scale models, accurate to micro and fluid levels.
3D printing can not only save time during the manufacturing process, but can also save time during the design phase by producing STL or CAD files ready to print.
As a single step production method, 3D printing saves time and, as a result, money compared to the use of various teams.
3D printing can produce products in hours, depending on the design and complexity of the piece, which is much faster than molded or machined parts.
3D printing can also be used to manufacture tools and injection molds.
Operators are not required to be present at all times because 3D printers can be configured and allow them to do their job.
3D printing reduces waste of material, which makes the production process more respectful with the environment.
This technology allows personalization and architectural freedom, as well as the rapid manufacture of the design phase.
