Pylos, a new methodology that seeks to bring 3D printing to the construction sector


many are companies and above all research centers and development which, thanks to interesting financing and future expectations, are trying to revolutionize the building industry which, in the end , 3D printing comes to it being able to build any type of structure in a single work.

on this occasion I would like to talk to you about the technology Pylos same which has been developed by the Institute for advanced architecture of Catalonia. Apparently, as have its makers, the idea came from a research project whose objective was to the create a new printing technique 3D for construction that would make use of natural and biodegradable materials which, moreover, could be reused.

Pylos is a technology where you attempt to bet on the use of natural materials in the construction.

entering a little more in detail, one of the features that most striking of Pylos technology is that, instead of trying to modify the material to give way is this which gives shape to the technology itself. In the first phase of the project has been that the material used has more tensile strength than industrial clay to three times. On the other hand, it should be noted that this clay not has been orneada so that, once used, can be used to create another structure or simply return it to nature.

on the other hand, and before leaving you with a couple of videos where you can see running all this new technology, noted that the Institute for advanced architecture of Catalonia has also been in parallel working of Pylos technology with business development Tecnalia . Thanks to this we have managed to evolve the robot of the latter, baptized as CoGiro to create the largest monolithic piece project, as well as in the evolution of the project Site On Robotics where they work to prove that unite Robotics and 3D printing can contribute in the development of the one called computer-aided construction.
