Barcelona Researcher Working on Soybean-Based, 3D-Printed Construction Material

(3D Printing Industry) — Sofoklis Giannakoupoulous, a researcher at Barcelona’s IaaC (the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia) is working on a soybean-based material that could be extruded — or 3D printed — to make structures that are more solid than concrete. Giannakoupoulous was exhibiting the material, a soybean-based brownish-looking powder, and the Kuka robotic… View Article

Teams of 3D Printing Robots Can Build Large Objects

(Treehugger) Researchers from the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) in Barcelona have created a team of 3D printer robots that can print large structures on-site, free from the confines of a machine. The IAAC technology can make buildings in one continuous, layer-by-layer process by utilizing a few 3D printer robots working as a team. The robots are called Minibuilders and are 16.5 inches wide or less. Using their own sensors and local positioning systems, each Minibuilder performs its individual role in order using instructions provided by a central computer. A Supplier robot provides liquid building material to each of the Minibuilders as it’s needed.
