€3.7m BADGER robot to 3D print pipes as it travels underground

Robotic 3D printers are helping to advance the next generation of autonomous construction. Recently, the 3D printing industry has seen houses 3D printed in 24 hours or less, and bridges materialising out of melted plastic. BADGER is the latest of these projects attempting to bring 3D printing to construction. The Europe-wide enterprise brings together a […]
