COBOD International, a leader in 3D construction printing, has developed a new tool for contractors and real estate developers. This new tool is the world’s first 3D construction printer configurator, making time and cost estimation for construction 3D printing much easier. It also aids in the calculation of the amount of concrete required for the project.
For example, the configurator shows how the printer can construct a 170 m2 (1.900 square foot) villa in just 26 hours, layer by layer.
3D Construction Printer Configurator
The first live and 3D visualised configurator for 3D construction printers has been launched by COBOD International. The configurator is available as an Android and iOS app as well as a web-based version.
Users of COBOD’s new 3D construction printer configurator can begin by customising the width, length, and height of their 3D printer. The configurator also allows you to estimate how long it will take to print a specific structure and how much material you’ll need.
“With this 3D construction printer configurator, you can configure the size of our modular printers up to 3 story building printers, simulate the print time and material consumption for our use case buildings. Using the configurator, you can see what the printer exactly looks like and what it can do for you”.– Henrik Lund-Nielsen, Founder & General Manager of COBOD International
He added, “3D printed buildings have now become a more advantageous option than conventional building methods. This is because a 3D printer saves many resources compared to conventional methods: It goes faster, requires fewer construction workers that are so hard to find these days and makes the working environment healthier. With our new Dfab solution for making 3D printable real concrete, locally sourced materials can be used to minimise the cost, transport, and delivery time as well.”
