‘Architectural Roomba’ Prints Life-Sized CAD Plans On The Ground [Video]
Construction site robot could prevent human errors when interpreting architectural plans.
Instead of relying on humans to interpret CAD plans, South Korean architectural designer Han Seok Nam has created a robot that can print them straight on to the ground. It’s claimed that Archibot could “revolutionize” how architects and contractors work on construction sites.
According to Nam, “Errors will be easily detectable since the construction document can be directly compared to a life-size print out directly on the construction site.” He even said that the process would be “just like following a map and driving towards a destination.”
