Zurich researchers start work on digitally fabricated DFAB House

We've seen quite a few building projects recently that make use of robots or 3D printing tech, or both, but a bunch of professors from ETH Zurich are attempting to make the whole design and build process digital. Once constructed by robots, the three-storey DFAB House will be used to test smart home technologies... Continue Reading Zurich researchers start work on digitally fabricated DFAB
