Imagine one day walking into a gorgeous structure—like LA's famous Walt Disney Concert Hall—only to discover it was designed by a computer system and constructed by automated robotic arms.
Ai Build, a London-based startup, aims to pave the way to 3D printing on large scales.
The company is equipping industrial-grade Kuka robotic arms with artificial intelligence and "3D printing guns" to 3D print large structures that focus on maximizing efficiency with labor and materials.
Founder and CEO Daghan Cam dreamed up the technology while considering traditional commercial construction and wondering what a more efficient and automated process might look like.
In October, the company partnered with engineering consulting firm Arup Engineers to debut the 3D printed Daedalus Pavilion at the GPU Technology Conference in Amsterdam.
The structure is roughly 16 feet wide and 14 feet tall.
