Branch Technology has announced that it has closed an $11 million funding round for its additive construction technology.
With its 2018 Series A round, this brings the startup’s total funding to $22 million, allowing the firm to expanding its team and further develop its unique approach to construction 3D printing. When we first learned about the company , Branch Technology had developed a method called Cellular Fabrication (C-Fab) for 3D printing polymer lattice structures that could then be sprayed with insulation and concrete to create extremely lightweight, yet structurally impressive prefab components. The process relies on industrial robotic arms outfitted with polymer extruders and attached to massive rails, resulting in one of the largest freeform 3D printing systems yet. According to the firm, elements 3D printed with C-Fab use 20 times less material than traditional layered printing, while still enabling remarkable strength-to-weight ratios. Since its 2015 launch, Branch Technology […]
