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, […]

DediBot’s flying 3D printer steals the show at TCT Asia

Fly Elephant is the name of a drone operated 3D printer that is making its public debut at TCT Asia in Shanghai this week. The theoretically unlimited scale 3D printer has been developed by DediBot, a cutting-edge manufacturing technology company headquartered in Hangzhou, and represents the ability to build structures without the constraints of a […]

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 […]
