3D printing in construction, architecture and the built-environment

The use of 3D printing for construction and architecture is a rapidly developing area. Additive manufacturing is used not only in the design stages of construction projects, but is also bringing remarkable full-scale structures to life.  This article highlights some of the possibilities that 3D printing brings to the built-environment. These include 3D printed houses, […]

Diese 3D-gedruckte Säule soll einem Erdbeben standhalten

Das kalifornische Architekturunternehmen Emerging Objects hat eine 3D-gedruckte Struktur entwickelt, die angeblich einem Erdbeben stand halten soll. Die Säule genannt “Quake Column” besteht aus 3D-gedruckten Zement-Ziegeln die ineinandergreifend zusammengebaut wurden. Inspiriert wurde das Projekt von der fugenlosen Verblockungs-Technik der Inkas. Durch den Spalt zwischen den einzelnen Steinen passt gerade mal eine Messerklinge hinein und dadurch können sich diese während […]

Emerging Objects Uses 3D Printing to Replicate Inca’s Seismically Resistant Architecture

(3DPrint.com) — Emerging Objects in Oakland, Calif., has created a 3D-printed design based on Incan techniques used to create seismically resistant structures. A seismic event, known simply as an earthquake, happens when two blocks of the Earth suddenly slip past one another, causing a sudden and violent shaking of the ground, which can sometimes lead… View Article
