First 3D Construction Printer Configurator Officially Launched by COBOD

As 3dpbm had anticipated last month, COBOD has now, officially, launched the first 3D construction printer configurator – a new tool that enables contractors and developers to estimate the time it will take to 3D print a specific building and calculate the volume of concrete materials needed. For instance, the configurator shows, layer by layer, how the printer can build a 170 m2 (1.900 square feet) villa in just 26 hours.
