Housing construction with 3D concrete printers

According to Professor Jay Sanjayan, the Swinburne University of Technology,” Each block of this freestanding structure is printed using a special cement composite. Rather than factory conditions, we have to print out in the weather.

Instead of a few kilos of materials, we have to handle tonnes. And although we don’t need the same accura­cy as the aerospace industry, we have to trade that for the low cost.”

3D printing for environment less waste, more sustainability

Posted on Updated on

According to Cartridge World, “3D printing also has the ability to create particularly fine details on its products, which could be useful in building artificial coral reefs to replace those lost by rising water temperatures and “inconsiderate tourist behaviour”. Previously, biologists have dropped concrete blocks into shallow waters in the hope of recreating reefs, yet studies have shown much marine life prefers surfaces with small holes and crevices to give protection from predators something 3D printing would be able to create”.
