A company is working on a concept called “Swarm 3D Printing”.
Arkansas-based AMBOTS describes themselves as:
“AMBOTS is an advanced manufacturing company with a focus on swarm 3D printing and assembly. We look forward to bringing you to the next manufacturing revolution.” And: “This technology aims to automate manufacturing with a swarm of smart and autonomous mobile robots, from everyday products to houses and infrastructures.
Just like how a swarm of bees or wasps would work together to build their nests, the swarm of smart mobile robots can work together to print and assemble products based on digital models on demand. AMBOTS stands for Autonomous Mobile roBOTS and Advanced Manufacturing roBOTS.” How does this work? You can gain some understanding by examining their most recent video, in which they show a prototype system 3D printing a 1000 x 350 mm object: Check out our newest demo video of our Swarm 3D Printing Platform, printing a 1,000 mm X 350 mm honeycomb artwork.
