Contour Crafting
Teknikken er ikke ny. Hvor arkitekterne herhjemme er godt igang med at implimentere Rapid Prototyping maskiner til brug på kontoret, så er der her et bud på en 1:1 produktions metode, som vil kunne sænke byggeomkostningerne med 80%, og mulighed for at bygge et enfamiliehus på 24 timer!! – umuligt?…alle andre industrier gør det rent faktisk allerede!
Jeg kan kun anbefale at men studerer alt information på firmaets hjemmeside. Der er ingen tvivl om at teknikker som denne vil øge arkitektens muligheder for form, og samtidig bringe arkitekten tættere på det endelige resultat, da hele byggestyringen i høj grad er digitaliseret i form af robot teknologi. Ikke dårligt.

Dream machine for architects
“Would a technology driven innovation like this become popular with architects? Dr Khoshnevis strongly believes so: “Architects are the strongest advocates of this technology, because for the first time they will be nabled to implement intricate designs using curved features and complex structures without incurring excessive construction expenses. Furthermore, such designs are currently not possible to implement where there is shortage of skilled workforce. Many famous architects around the world are in contact with us and are inspiring us with great ideas. We also believe that architects will eventually be the drivers of this technology. Consider these two analogies: When movie camera was invented, the art of cinema was non-existent. When computer printers first came out, there were no fancy fonts or desktop publishing software. Many creative people used the movie camera and the printer technologies to create wonderful stuff. The CC technology will provide a very capable 3D printer with which anything can be fabricated. The rest will be left to the imagination and creativity of architects and even novice designers to change the look of our homes, neighbourhoods and cities.”
