Code of 3D printed houses cracked by TU Eindhoven professor’s equations

When it comes to 3D printing, processes are often developed and defined using trial and error, because so many aspects of the technology not yet fully understood. This is particularly the case with 3D concrete 3D printing, which is becoming increasingly popular in construction. Prof. Akke Suiker, professor of Applied Mechanics at the Eindhoven University […]
