Branch Technology recognized a problem with efficiency and cost in building construction. They leveraged inspiration from nature and large scale robotic additive manufacturing to revolutionize building construction and became the first company to 3D print large-scale structures. Using Pointwise for structured mesh generation enables Branch Technology to increase the reliability of their process while simultaneously decreasing the time to generate printer instructions. Learn how Pointwise reduces the time for generating 3D printed instructions from weeks to hours.
