In this time and age, modern technology has had a huge impact in making our lives much easier. There's the surge of smart phones, tablets and other sophisticated gadgets. You can even make phone calls through a watch. We also have those self-driving cars. You'll never have a problem doing parallel parking anymore. Almost all business processes are being automated as well.
Nowadays, our lifestyle is more active, verging on hectic, and incredibly fast-paced. Providing the public with a moreconvenient way of doing anything will give you, a business owner, the competitive advantage. If we want our business to survive, we have to keep up. You know what they say: You snooze, you lose.
From printing fountains and statues to decorative fencing, monuments, and of course, homes and warehouses. This is a new industry, but it will evolve very quickly in numerous directions.
As the world is slowly learning about a 3D Printed Castle, and similar videos are beginning to go viral, entrepreneurs all over the world are both fascinated and enamored with thoughts of potential possibilities. There is no doubt that this technology will change construction forever, but as thousands of curious prospects begin to come in, it’s becoming obvious that the cost to educate the public is going to be extensive. Everyone has so many questions, but no one is really talking.
At first glance, the idea of printing concrete seems easy. After all, everyone has seen a 3D printer or CNC router tables, so where is the real mystery? As hundreds are anxious to simulate what they’ve seen on YouTube, they do so with a very naive approach.
The idea of moving concrete with a computer controller isn’t hard at all. Anyone with a CNC router table can rig up a funnel and some sprinkler pipe to simulate most of the videos we’re beginning to see. And 90% quickly discover that the real mystery is in controlling and finishing the mud. Most of the people we speak to are fascinated by the idea, but nearly everyone hates the layer by layer look of the finished product. Even still, the idea of plastering the finished product is a viable solution, but the preference would be the ability to finish as you go and eliminate even more expense in an unnecessary step.
So while many CNC companies are just getting around to pouring their first bucket of mud through a funnel connected to a CNC table, and discovering the challenges of working with a material that changes every minute, the real players are already working to engineer a way to provide a finish that doesn’t require a crew of plasterers to come behind and make the finished product look good.
So even if you have a thousand hours to waste on figuring out the formula for mixing the right mud that will support itself without turning into a flat mess or falling over when trying to cantilever the third and fourth pass, the next step requires a team of engineers to design a troweling feature that can follow the printed path and rotate with every turn. This is where others generally lose interest because it requires a competent group of software and mechanical engineers that understand the dynamics of 5-axis robotics as well as the structural characteristics of building with mortar.
The Germans lead the pack right now, but they aren’t interested in selling what they have built. Their business model is to provide service rather than sell their printing machine. Several Chinese companies are trying to cash in, but to date, they haven’t shown anything more than pushing some mortar out of a 2-axis CNC table. All they have accomplished is linear printing rather than 3D printing as evidenced by their videos. The group that started most of this with the 3D printed castle is ahead of most, but still have no solution for the undesirable finish that everyone’s concerned about.
Those that are a year or two into this know enough to recognize the challenge of managing a mechanical device that can rotate every corner and move in a manner that does not knock down the work that’s been done in an attempt to trowel as-you-go. It is the real task.
MudBots is a technological innovation which integrates concrete printing process to robotics. Before, you build houses using the conventional way of construction. We're talking about hiring men to do the work, and months of manual labor. Now you can build houses at the fastest rate possible. What's more, you will only be spending a fraction of what it usually costs with the conventional way of construction. You can save as much as 70% of production costs through the use of 3D Concrete Printing technology.
It's not just houses you can build through the use of Concrete 3D Printers. You can also make statues, monuments, boulders, fountains — and a whole lot more! Complexity is never a problem. With the flexibility of MudBots 3D Concrete Printers, it can print even the minutest detail your design has.
