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.
