STONE SPRAY is a multidirectional, spray-based 3D-Printing construction method. It uses granular materials (i.e.sand) and a binder to solidify them on-site, with very fast drying time and exceptional structural capacities.
Attached to 5-axis robot, a CNC controlled sand-binder spray can bring stone-hard, amazingly complex architectural structures to live.
