It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s…a 3D Printer That Flies

Additive manufacturing companies put in a lot of time, effort, and money to develop innovative 3D printers that are capable of large-scale and full-color printing, 3D printing with materials like metal, foam, and human tissue, and can produce components both quickly and slowly, as well as on the move. Then of course, there are the seemingly […]

TU/e Professor Develops Equations to Keep 3D Printed Concrete Walls From Collapsing

TU/e Professor Develops Equations to Keep 3D Printed Concrete Walls From Collapsing

Concrete 3D printing has made it possible for us to rapidly build all sorts of structures, from benches and bridges to houses and hotel villas. But the construction method is not without its faults. The concrete comes out flexible and soft during the process, which leaves the 3D printed walls at risk of falling over or […]

NYU Tandon Students Utilize Digital Fabrication and 3D Printing to Design Winning Concrete Canoe

NYU Tandon Students Utilize Digital Fabrication and 3D Printing to Design Winning Concrete Canoe

From simple PLA to glass and metal, there are all sorts of interesting 3D printing materials being used these days. I find concrete to be one of the more interesting materials, strictly because I know that there still are people who think 3D printing is only good for making little plastic characters, and not actual buildings. […]

3D Printing in Concrete to Expand Substantially, Projected to be $56.4 Million Industry by 2021

Construction is one of the main areas 3D printing has been projected to impact substantially, all along. It also tends to be the example of choice for critics asking what happened to all those lofty architectural plans that have yet to be seen on the ground. There aren’t 3D printers in every home yet, and […]
