The next generation needs to know about the new, tech-savvy leadership positions in the construction industry. Technological advances are increasing productivity and innovation in the industry. These technologies are helping contractors, developers, and everyone in the industry by reducing errors in the field, improving design accuracy, and making data available for real-time decision-making throughout a project’s process.
Did you know: 3D-Printing has been a concept change for the manufacturing industry, especially in the last decade, and is now innovating how to design/build HVAC systems.
What Is 3D Printing?
3D Printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is a method of creating a three-dimensional object layer-by-layer using a computer-created design.
- The process works by laying down thin layers of material in the form of liquid or powdered plastic, metal, or cement— and then fusing the layers together.
The ability to print parts and equipment with 3D printers is changing how the entire HVAC industry approaches design. HVAC companies have fewer time constraints because they can actualize designs with a 3-D printer in a matter of hours.
A great thing about 3D printing is that it ensures construction materials are used exactly; there is no waste, as the printer can precisely administer building materials according to the blueprint.
