A fully Robotic and 3D Printing solution for large scale building delivery

Periodic Reporting for period 1 – Evo Constructor (A fully Robotic and 3D Printing solution for large scale building delivery)

3D printing is an advanced manufacturing process that can produce complex shape geometries automatically from a 3D computer-aided design model. Now, it emerges as an automated manufacturing process that has been applied to the building sector, becoming a revolutionary technology to construct buildings or construction components. However, 3D printing will need so face many challenges before entering the market.

The Evo Constructor project arises as fully Robotic & 3D Printing solution for large scale building delivery, since it will allow to automate the vast majority of the constructive processes. Our patented solution consists of a specific 6-axis gantry robot controlled by a specific computer numerical control (CNC) that allows the use of several nozzles, different construction tools and a plurality of sensors at the same time. Evo Constructor provides significant improvements compared to the existing systems in the market and provides a lot of differences characteristics that allow to reach the great goal of being a complete automate system for on-site building constructions.

To understand the great economic savings that our technology provides, it is possible to reduce the cost of the wall construction works by 65% compared to current manual methods, at a cost of less than 8-12 €/m2. Likewise, the workplace accidents and health risks are drastically reduced, and the waste generated is lessen by 90% vs 30-60% of the current 3D Printing systems because we automatize more tasks. Regarding the final costs of a typical construction work, it achieves cut down the cost from 750 to 525 €/m2 (30% savings).

Regarding the overall objectives of Evo Constructor project, we will complete the large-scale prototyping, testing and product industrialization stages required before we are able to offer our solution to companies of the building sector at international level.
