The Premise

The general state of today’s construction industry is outdated, inefficient and harmful.

Blunt instruments dating back to the bronze age just don’t work in today’s world.

Outdated

  • Process
  • Complexity
  • Structural Integrity
A fully manual process that involves people swinging hammers, welding iron, tying rebar, and pouring slow-drying concrete traces back hundreds of years. The results can be complex and instable process management, multiple failure points, unpredictable results, and questionable structural integrity.

Inefficient

  • Time
  • Energy
  • Labor
  • Material
Construction is very time consuming and unpredictable. Labor consumes about 50% of the construction process cost and can move slowly with inherent people-based physical constraints.  Many traditional materials that don’t adapt well to varying structural and environmental factors frequently requiring significant rework and on-the-fly customization.

Harmful

  • Safety & Liability
  • Environment
  • Sustainability
In the USA alone, several thousand people die each year in construction-related accidents.  Many are also hospitalized with acute or chronic illness from exposure to hazardous substances and conditions.  In addition, construction is very wasteful and is the number one contributor to landfills.

Material Science

Scalable Automation Platform

Genesis Dimensions is interrupting the construction process with large scale 3D printing technologies. Whether for constructing buildings or creating precasting molds, due to our proprietary software and robotics suite, clients are able to transform a CAD model into a usable form/structure. Kaleb Steinhauer

CEO, Genesis Dimensions

Our proprietary materials create robust and reusable forms to increase the bottom line. With our robotic solution, you are able to 3D print your forms & structures, reducing extensive labor cost. Casey Roberts

Materials Lead, Genesis Dimensions

Features

Long Reach

We will develop a large-scale 3D printer and appropriate materials to print structures up to 30 m (100 ft) high.

Adjustable Density

We are designing our proprietary print head to adjust print material density on-the-fly from, e.g., 32 kg/m³ (2 lb/ft³) up to 1281 kg/m³ (80 lb/ft³) density.

Mobile Platform

Our print crawler will be designed to be mobile, operating on tracks with an extendable robotic arm to reach, all with 1 mm (0.039 in) expected accuracy.

Benefits

Safety

Repeatable, automated process will mean improved safety. Fewer worksite injuries and lowered liability. Non-toxic, sustainably sourced materials pose lower risk for workers and building inhabitants, and less damage to the surrounding environment.

Quality

Robots work accurately and repeatedly. Combined with proprietary purpose-engineered building materials, this fusion will raise the bar for quality, integrity, and precision..

Efficiency

Time is money, traditional materials and tools are blunt instruments, people are valuable. Our process will apply the right amount of the right material in the right way, dramatically reducing build time and rework and freeing up precious person-hours from repeatable tasks to more value-added work.

Improved Predictability

Instead of relying on imperfect humans, the project manager has a strong improved view on predictability and construction job delivery – due to a robotic machine performing the task at hand.

Easy Customization

Machines accurately operate on any axis, linear or non-linear and thus print curved (not just straight) lines, too. As a result, architects can let their imagination run free.

Lasting Structures

The life expectancy of a building will be much longer with a lot less upkeep compared to stick framed buildings. The structure will be much more resilient to natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, fires & insects.

Fewer Materials

By utilizing our construction process, less building materials are required and thus far less waste is generated, which plays a significant role in lowering landfill deposits.

Cut Energy Consumption

Due to superior insulated materials, airtight walls, less logistics, less remedial cleanup and faster construction times the overall energy consumption drops significantly.

Low Environmental Impact

Since the 3D printing materials used are more environmentally friendly and there is less waste, the overall environmental footprint will be less when compared to traditional construction methods.

Sustainable Development

At Genesis Dimensions we are committed to help reduce CO2 by lowering energy consumption and minimize exploitation of natural resources.
