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.”

According to Jenna, “she created a 3D-printed ballet shoe that gives comfort to the dancers.
The project is the design of ballet pointed shoes via 3D printing and scanning technologies. Ballet shoe design has remained virtually unchanged for centuries. But we now have technology that allows us to address the customization and fit issues that cause toe deformation and injury”.

Posted on Updated on

Master chef fans lose it ‘3D printer’ dessert🥧 food printers combine nozzles, powdery material, lasers and robotic arms to make sculptures and geometric shapes.
According to Master Chef judge Matt Preston, “the dish had a “cutting edge-type element” on it before they saw it.

We’ve seen the dish🍳. There’s one element there that I don’t think I’ve seen on an Australian restaurant menu anywhere else around the country. And that’s a totally cutting edge-type element that I think is going to bake your noodles🍝,”.
