Inventing a house printer. Open design competition.

Post by bkorsedal » Fri Aug 02, 2013 11:58 pm

Hi guys,

I've got a neat technology and I'd like to see if you guys would be
interested in doing a joint project or a design competition. Basically, I
wrote software which can make a steel space frame in any shape. It's not
quite a 3D printer, but it works today and we can make stuff the size of
warehouses. We hope to turn it into a computer generated house maker over
the next year.

We have a design competition going on right now, but no one seems to be
interested. We're not getting a lot of flak from people because we call it
a 3D printer, which it isn't exactly, but very similar in results and it
works today, rather than 10 years from now.

I was wondering who in your community we could talk to about doing a joint
design competition? We'll manufacture the winner, which will probably be
around 30ft by 30ft by 15ft tall.

You can read about us here:

Here is an example of a cool structure we'd like to build some day:

Here is a description of how our software works and links to files for our
design challenge:

We've built six structures to date and we'd like to keep doing this, but
we're making zero progress with connecting to the public. We kinda think
this technology would be a 3D designers dream, but we might have to quit,
which would be tragic. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

TLDR:

Want to try our house printer?
