I did a first complete run for the structure of the toilet booth but without the application of the adhesive. 

The mechanism is working well as intended but needs a little bit of calibration and tramming.

The machine took 18 minutes to finish the structure which averages out to a minute and a half for every brick course (not bad in my opinion). It will definitely take more time with the application of the mortar/adhesive but still would be very time efficient as compared to a standard 3d printing process. If my calculation are correct a full scale machine will be able to construct at least 6-8 such booths in under a day.

Here are a few photos of the the model structure created.
