After years of research, development, and capital investment, S-Squared 3D Printers (SQ3D), a desktop 3D printer manufacturer from Patchogue, NY, became the latest company to venture into the fascinating realm of construction 3D printing by presenting its patent-pending Autonomous Robotic Construction System, (ARCS).

Like other construction systems, the ARCS applies cartesian 3D printing principles to traditional construction, with the potential of building everything from homes and commercial buildings to infrastructures such as roads and bridges. The technology has no inherent size limitation so its potential is very broad and the company has built an entirely new division, the S-Squared 4D Project around it.

According to S-Squared, the specialized ARCS 3D printer outperforms traditional construction by reducing both time and cost up to 70%.  It is considered the most safe, effective, and eco-friendly way to build, defining the new standard for future construction. SQ3D leverages proprietary cutting edge technology to solve the increasingly complex demand of today’s construction.

In terms of sheers size potential, ARCS projects range from 500 square feet to over 1 million square feet. The 3D printed structures can withstand the most severe weather, including high winds from hurricanes. Structures are impervious to water and are fire and mold resistant. All structures built with ARCS have a structural integrity that can last a century and require little maintenance.

ARCS is mobile and safely sets up in as little as six hours. OSHA instructors have praised this machine for its potential to reduce some of the most common injuries associated with construction. This is a game changer that will revolutionize the speed, quality, cost and safety of building and construction.
