US Army creates new 3D printing concrete composite for rapid construction of buildings

The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), a federal agency under the Department of Defense, has developed and patented a concrete composition that enables 3D printing for building components demanding high structural strength.   Using this composition, the USACE can potentially accelerate construction of buildings for a wider variety of military and civilian operations. Cement […]

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, […]

3D printing used to create new experimental buildings in Israel and US

Two new experimental structures that incorporate 3D printing may open up new possibilities for construction. The first is a 3D printed concrete building known as the barracks hut or the B-Hut and is the largest of its kind in the US. The second is a pavilion made of bamboo that is partially suspended in mid-air […]

US-Army realisiert 512 qm² Beton-Kaserne mit eigenem 3D-Drucksystem „ACES“

Das in Champaign, Illinois, ansässige US-Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) verkündete die Fertigstellung einer 512 Quadratmeter großen, 3D-gedruckten Betonkaserne. Diese konnte dank einer von CERL in Kooperation mit der NASA entwickelten 3D-Drucktechnologie realisiert werden. Das 3D-gedruckte Bauwerk entsprang einem dreijährigen Programm der US-Army, welches auf die Herstellung semipermanenter Gebäude mit additiven Fertigungsprozessen fokussiert ist. […]
