BAM and Universe Architecture to launch revolutionary robo printer on FabCity

3D BUILDER offers complete design freedom and makes creation of Landscape House possible

Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 8 June 2016 - On Wednesday 8 June, the world’s first 3D BUILDER will enter service on FabCity. This ‘building machine’ is the first of its kind where free-form print technology is linked to automotive industry robotics. This ground-breaking innovation makes free-form architecture possible, as well as the creation of complex ornamental exteriors. The new robot with an exchangeable print head can print stone and concrete using the Italian D-shape method. In the future, it will be possible to link new print techniques for steel and insulation material, for example. Caterpillar tracks can also be placed under the robot - in collaboration with robotics partner AcoTech from Eindhoven - to enable it to travel autonomously across the building site. The 3D BUILDER is going to start with the construction of the Landscape House on a scale of 1:4 on FabCity, the temporary sustainable campus at the end of Java-eiland in Amsterdam.
