Who We Are
Dusty Robotics is an early-stage venture-backed startup developing robot-powered tools for the modern construction site. The trend in construction is towards increasing digitization. Yet while 3 in 4 construction firms have adopted digital BIM modeling to design buildings, most of the building work is still performed by skilled labor in the field.
Dusty is developing robotic automation tools that bridge this gap between BIM and the field. Our first product, the Dusty FieldPrinter, is essentially a “printer on wheels” that can take BIM/CAD models and print them full size on the deck of a construction site. Instead of pulling measuring tape to mark points and snapping chalk lines, layout crews using our robotic solution produce high-quality, accurate layout in record time.
In choosing Dusty, you will be leading a small team of world-class engineers to bring the FieldPrinter to life. We have strong customer pull and a full pipeline just waiting for us to finish building this product.
