After radically transforming the worlds of design and production in sectors such as car manufacturing and aeronautics, digital technologies are now entering the construction sector. But the question is how to automate one of the last low-qualification job sector without causing human problems, or developing new trades and new jobs? How do we shift indoor industrial technologies to the construction site? How do we build tomorrow’s sustainable habitat? The basic idea of this project is to use I-Site Future as a place where the partners can develop research around construction scenarios in which automated and digitised processes are used to construct and maintain the digital city of tomorrow. The models and tools are available, there is convergence between industrial and academic interests, and demonstration prototypes will be produced.
The DiXite3dPrint Symposium is an initiative of the DiXite collaborative research project. Over two days, the event will bring together the main French players, researchers, teachers and industry, in order to review advances made in additive manufacturing for construction. A 2-day on-site workshop organized by the Ecole des Ponts ParisTech, the Advanced Master – Mastère Spécialisé Design by Data and with the support of the DiXite project, will be offered before the conference around the Build’in robotized printing platform.
