Wednesday's lunch event at Baur au Lac Zurich was well attended by a diverse group of investors and offered deep insights into concrete 3D printing in construction. Dr Agnes Petit, CEO of Mobbot, also showed examples of real world applications of 3D printing in the industry.
Within the construction industry the highest value added from 3D printing is applied to customized parts, while prefabrication still provides the most viable approach for the majority of construction elements.

Dr. Petit highlighted a number of companies that are benefitting from investing in 3D printing and gave clear examples of how individual lives are transformed through these new techniques.
