Live Demonstration of ACES Concrete 3D Printing Technology at CERL to 3D Print Barracks: Part 2

Live Demonstration of ACES Concrete 3D Printing Technology at CERL to 3D Print Barracks: Part 2

I was recently invited to the US Army’s Engineer Research and Development Center’s (ERDC) Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) in Illinois to see a live demonstration of its Automated Construction of Expeditionary Structures (ACES) technology. Last year, the US Army used ACES to 3D print a complete barracks, or B-Hut, in 21.5 hours with the Army’s patented concrete mixture. […]

Live Demonstration of ACES Concrete 3D Printing Technology at CERL US Army to Print house in a day: Part 1

Last August, the US Army 3D printed a complete barracks, also known as a B-Hut, out of concrete, as part of a three-year program called Automated Construction of Expeditionary Structures (ACES). The ACES program is looking into 3D printing as a means to create semi-permanent structures out of concrete that’s made from locally available materials; the overall […]

US Army Successfully Tests 3D Printed Grenade Launcher with 3D Printed Grenades

US Army Successfully Tests 3D Printed Grenade Launcher with 3D Printed Grenades

A couple years ago, a program responsible for training workers on weapon removal, like land mines and grenades, utilized 3D printing kits as teaching aids. Around the same time, some clever kids developed a 3D printed stink grenade. But now, the US Army is introducing a 3D printed grenade launcher, complete with 3D printed grenades, that […]
