Beam nodes often have a unique geometry: three or four beams of different width, height and angle must be assembled together on the same post.
Using traditional methods, producing the formwork for these structures consumes single-use materials and time. It is carried out in several phases and can constitute a source of non-quality. The use of a digital model linked to 3D printing allows quick and one-go production of this complex part.
Other advantages for beam nodes: reduction in the arduousness of the work for our companions, an elimination of successive assembling and finally a saving of space for scrap metal workers.
