ARCS operates at a fraction of the cost of what is currently necessary to build a quality home.
With no more than 2 workers needed to monitor the machine at any given time, the cost of labor is dramatically reduced.
The current used on our proprietary low-power consumption technology is about the same as a standard hairdryer.
Combining the use of concrete alongside our Zeero™ Waste printing process allows for cheaper and stronger material, used to the exact quantity needed.
Thanks to requiring only 2 laborers onsite, as well as the inherent safety of automation, the costs of workers comp and other types of insurance are mitigated.
When building with wood or stone, constructing complex, custom structures is significantly more cost-intensive. With SQ4D, printing intricate designs are the same price as straight walls.
Workers Needed For ARCS
Cheaper Than Traditional
Fuel Per 500 sq. ft.
Comparing the finished total cost to build a home to that same home built by traditional methods, SQ4D saves an estimated 40% per structure.
SQ4D’s 3D printer capable of building full-sized commercial and residential structures was designed with cost in mind.
Only 2-3 workers needed.
Unaffected by rising lumber costs.
Same price for complex designs.
Cheaper home allows for more budget flexibility with land.
Safer machine + less workers = low workers comp.
Very small amounts of electricity and fuel needed for full job.
No need for manual formwork.
Many workers needed for single project.
Greatly affected by rising lumber costs.
Complex designs more expensive.
Expensive lots of land are out-of-budget with homes costing more.
Riskier building methods + more workers = higher workers comp.
Larger project cost and toll on the environment due to resources used.
Increased labor for manual formwork.
With ARCS by SQ4D, building full-scale homes is now possible in hours, not days or months.
Our concrete compression strength tests exceed the industry standard by double.
By automating the building process, 3D printing is safer for workers than any alternative.
