Problem Statement

As climate change becomes a larger threat, the idea of space travel becomes a less abstract idea. If we, as a species, get to a point where settling on a new planet becomes a necessity it would be worthwhile for as much infrastructure to be built before our arrival as possible. The problem this project solves is the ability to autonomously assemble piping for plumbing and drainage. To most people, piping is not what comes to mind when thinking about modern living. Although it is certainly essential.
