US Marines construct 3D-printed concrete barracks

Posted on Updated on

US Marines construct 3D-printed concrete barracks in U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center in Champaign, Illinois.

According to the Marine Corps Capt. Matthew Friedell, AM project officer in MCSC’s Operations and Programs/G-3,” the team used a design model on an old computer, concrete, and a 3D printer. The concrete was then put through the 3D printer. It took approximately 40 hours to complete the barracks hut. If there was a robot to do the mixing and pumping, the building could easily be created in one day. This capability would enable a great partnership with the local community because it is low cost, easy to use, and robotics could print the buildings.”

3D printing used in Volkswagen production

Posted on Updated on

According to Martin Goede, he is the Head of Technology Planning and Development at Volkswagen, “A complete vehicle won’t come out of a 3D printer any time soon. The goal is to integrate printed structural parts into the next vehicle generation. Over the long term, we expect to see continuous growth in lot sizes, component size and technical requirements – all the way up to components that are the size of soccer balls and are produced in lot sizes of more than 100,000 units per year.
Volkswagen has been using the process for more than 20 years now but not in mass production. In prototype construction, 3D printing has already proven itself to be a practical, effective solution. It would simply take too much work to make casting and press tools for components that are produced in small lot sizes”.
