Team RedWorks is traveling to San Mateo for Lightspeed Innovations' 2017 Pitch Event on May 19th. We've had an amazing experience building our business with the Lightspeed team, and cannot thank them enough for all that they have done for us.
When our team began in the summer of 2015, we never expected that the ideas we were creating would excite people the way they did during the 3D Printed Habitat Challenge. We've been honored by the support and enthusiasm we've received from members of the 3D Printing, architecture & design, and construction industries, and today we announce the new steps we're taking to bring Made for Mars technology back to Earth.
We're putting our efforts into the development of early versions of our ISAC printing systems to be introduced in Q1 2018 to experimental architects and contractors who have expressed their interest in the system’s applications. The product suite under development right now would allow architects and engineers to create, validate and upload material designs that can be created using an ISAC printer to an online Material Marketplace. This technology will make it easier, faster, and cheaper to make custom building materials that have never before been possible with traditional construction techniques, and will radically cut construction material waste by fitting components directly to the needs of builders in the field.
RedWorks first created out technology to make long-term missions to Mars less costly and more adaptable. The goal was to make construction simpler and adaptable on-site. We're bringing those same solutions to builders on Earth because the challenges are the same. To tackle high material cost with less labor, the world needs a better way of building on-site.
RedWorks CEO, Keegan Kirkpatrick will be speaking to the UCLA architecture student body tomorrow at Perloff Hall at 1pm on the future of construction.
Special thanks to Darren Bechtel and Brick and Mortar Ventures for inviting us to this event. We hope to see plenty of aspiring pioneers!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
LANCASTER, California / SAN JOSE, California, May 10th, 2017 - RedWorks Construction Technologies Inc. is proud to announce that RedWorks will partner with 4th Law, LLC to bring 4th Law’s groundbreaking cloud control systems and Redworks’ additive construction technologies to market over the coming years.
A combined RedWorks/4th Law solution will allow deployment of machines that use common soil to “print” low-cost building materials in austere regions while maintaining remote control and updates via 4th Law’s CaaS (Control as a Service) cloud-based systems.
With the help of 4th Law, RedWorks plans on bringing its initial product to market, an In-Situ Additive Construction (ISAC) On-Site Material 3D Printer. The ISAC Printer is used to convert locally sourced materials into a finished design on-site, using designs from a marketplace of materials created by architects and engineers.
The benefits of the unique partnership arrangement with 4th Law are invaluable with regard to product feature innovations and developing next generation improvements to systems. 4th Law will provide engineering services and assist in the design and implementation of a vehicle platform for the RedWorks system, as well as a control system to allow for remote operation and fleet monitoring.
RedWorks' technology, originally developed to address long term habitation challenges in the NASA 3D Printed Habitat Challenge, will be directed at addressing the world’s commercial and residential construction needs.
RedWorks is committed to giving builders new tools for creating custom building materials completely on-site from technology originally developed for use in space. To that end we see a need for control systems that can provide across the board in-process optimization of the operation our products in the field.
4th Law was created to disrupt the complex and fast growing vehicle markets through modular, low cost control solutions. 4th Law's Control as a Service leverages cloud resources to provide control remotely while aggregating real time spatiotemporal data.
