Even the internal structure could be modified in new ways, researchers said. Different materials could be incorporated as the process goes along, and material density could be varied for optimum combinations of strength, insulation, or other properties .The system consists of a tracked vehicle that carries a large, industrial robotic arm, which has a smaller precision-motion robotic arm at its end. This highly controllable arm can then be used to direct any construction nozzle
