Architecture students create 3D printing robots that can build just about anywhere

Where 3D printing is concerned, the possibilities are practically endless , so it’s no surprise that researchers are now trying to find ways to link robotics and 3D printing to solve all kinds of real world problems. At CCA, a three-person student research team has been working on Arduino-powered robots that can use 3D printing to make, well, whatever they need. The students are focusing their efforts on enabling the robots to build on rough terrain, where traditional construction equipment might not be able to access or would have trouble operating correctly.
