3D-printed concrete structure

Posted on Updated on

According to Asst Prof Pham from NTU’s School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, “We envisioned a team of robots which can be transported to a work site, print large pieces of concrete structures and then move on to the next project once the parts have been printed.
This research builds on the knowledge we have acquired from developing a robot to autonomously assemble. But this latest project is more complex in terms of planning, execution, and on a much larger scale.”

3D Printing Jewelry


According to the Aaron Issac’s Singapore based company, ” Polychemy is using 3D printers to make jewelry.   Polychemy uses 3D printers to produce a wax mold that is cast into metal.  They analyze traffic on Google to find out what type of jewelry people are searching for.  Then they develop that type of jewelry”.:)
