Robot paints walls in hard-to-reach places (Robotics/Painting - 2017-09 - Technology.org)

Estonian company, SprayPainter, has developed a graffiti robot that can climb up and down walls to create large-scale murals. The prototype device attaches 5 spray cans, each with a nozzle, to a little robot that climbs a wall and paints whatever giant image it is programmed to. It is tracked by a computer that determines its position by calculating its place on the cable it travels on. The system creates a full-color printed image in one pass by modulating the duration of each color spray. It mixes colors on the fly, by printing small dots of different colors side-by-side, so that when viewed from a distance the colors blend together.

3D-printing a 380 sq ft home in 8 hours (Additive Manufacturing/Home Building - 2017-05 - Futurism)

PassivDom, a Ukrainian start-up, uses a 3D-printing robot that can print the walls, roof, and floor of a 380-square-foot model home in about eight hours. When complete, the homes are autonomous and mobile, meaning they don’t need to connect to external electrical and plumbing systems.

Robotic system 3-D prints entire building's basic structure (Robotics/Buildings - 2017-04 - Technology.org)

Researchers at MIT have developed a robotic system (‘Digital Construction Platform’), capable of ‘printing’ the basic structure of an entire building. The system is comprised of a tracked vehicle that carries a large, industrial robotic arm, which has a smaller, precision-motion robotic arm at its end. As proof of concept, the research team built a 50′-diameter, 12′-high dome (2,000 sq ft), which took less than 14 hours of “printing” time.

US company 3D-printed a 400 sq.ft. circular house using concrete in 24 hours (Additive Manufacturing/Home Building - 2017-02 - TheNextWeb)

San Francisco-based Apis Cor 3D-printed a 400 sq.ft. house in 24 hours using a concrete mixture which it says lasts around 175 years. The house was built on-site with a crane-shaped printer at their Moscow test facility at a cost of $10,134
