A family permanently lives in a 3D-printed home

Posted on Updated on

A family permanently lives in a 3D-printed home, take a look at the ‘Yhnova project’ in France, according to Ville de Nantes, “Nantes has provided the site for a house, Yhnova Batiprint3D™, built in just a few days, thanks to a 3D printer. This innovation, of the University of Nantes, was made possible thanks to the pooling of know-how of different partners: scientists, industrialists, public and socio-economic actors.”

Do they keep the foam once the concrete is dry? I did not understand that part. Thanks in advance.

NC STATE STUDENTS LAUNCH 3D PRINTING OF PROSTHETIC DEVICES

Posted on Updated on

NC State students launch 3D printing of prosthetic devices.
According to Helping Hand Project President Griffin Drye said, “A general prosthetic might cost between $10,000-20,000, and a kid grows out of that in six months. Each device we print costs between $50-100 to actually produce.”

@Engineering Juice and the vacuum will work just fine, right, because it is a poor conductor?

@Lucas Agazzani It depends on the material you are printkng with, as well as your design and tolerances.

@Lucas Agazzani I have a Youtube tutorial on my channel where I design a water bottle. Maybe that can help you

3D Printed Building- Interesting Facts to Know

3D Printed Building- Interesting Facts to Know

image1[1]

We all remember the time, not so long ago when we had to hire workers to make a building and work on the project for days or months. The process costs so much and with each unexpected problem of the workers came an unexpected delay. The delayed construction and high costs created a need for the technologists to come up with a better idea. Thus, the 3d models for printing came into existence. 3d building printing gave rise to new horizons in the field of construction and manufacturing.

 3d printed buildings are built by using the technology of 3d printing as a means to construct houses and buildings in the most efficient and cost-effective method. This method has vastly been adopted by the Chinese and has also gained its worth in Europe. This makes sense because people are tired of bearing high expenditures, lengthy construction timings, and never-ending design processes. Today, 3d printing has enabled you to forget all these worries about people wearing yellow helmets and use robotic techniques for mechanical piping of concrete. So, a 3d printed building will save you from the trouble by giving you the perfect 3d model for printing.

Interesting facts to know about 3D printed houses:

  • Resolve the future homelessness

We see homelessness as one of the significant issues of humanity at present. According to estimates, homelessness can exceed up to 1.6 billion people living in the improper shelter by 2025. Building a house or building from scratch can cost people a lot. A building offering flats or hostels can save the problem by efficient working on buildings that save your cost. By replacing the traditional and lengthy methods of using bricks and mortar with automated robotic piping of concrete, one can save time and money while still reducing the problem of homelessness in society.

  • No need for bricks

image2[1]

As hard as it is to imagine, houses can today be made without using bricks and mortar. Bricks and mortar took more time and effort for the builders to work with, and it used to leave us for waiting the time for its completion. However, by using 3d printing, robots can pipe in the concrete step by step and even the building at the same time. This saves you the costs of buying all the material for construction and also protects from wasted time. 

  • Robots are your builders

There was once a time where it was hard for us to believe that humans can create robots one day. Today, we are at a stage where robots have become so efficient that they have become the new builders. The robots are very efficient, and they don’t need breaks like human workers. This saves more time, and work is also better than humans. The human errors are also removed to the greatest extent possible, and all humans need to do is to command the machine, and it will work for you.

  • Save the cost and time

Constructing a building is a full-time job. A building project needs to be carefully catered with and must be monitored to save it from defects and additional costs. By using 3d printing in the construction of buildings, you can save the value of the construction process by saving more time. It will also cut down the labour cost because all 3d printing needs is an initial investment, and the rest will be catered in the least possible time. Dubai today has been working on the 3d printed buildings and have been one of the most efficient working hubs for 3d printing worldwide. Thus, more and more people are adopting this new technology because it reduces costs by optimizing raw materials and useful results.

Thus, 3d printed buildings have become a new trend around the globe. People are willing to rely on robotic technology rather than humans with risky results. Robots can be left alone at the workplace without any check and balance and will work for creating a sustainable working environment.  

The only problems with 3d printed buildings are that it needs initial capital investment and also any defect in the robotic machinery can cost a lot to correct as well. Another problem with 3d printed buildings is the fact that it also reduces the job opportunities for builders and manufacturers. However, 3d printed structures are an effective way to meet the construction requirements in the minimum of time.

Siemens is purchasing Atlas 3D

Posted on Updated on

According to Zvi Feuer, senior vice president of manufacturing engineering software at Siemens Digital Industries Software, said in a company press release, “We welcome Atlas 3D to the Siemens community as the newest member of our additive manufacturing team. Our solutions industrialize additive manufacturing for large enterprises, 3D printing service bureaus, design firms, and CAD designers. The cloud-based Sunata software makes it easy for designers to determine the optimal way to 3D print parts for high quality and repeatability. The combination of Sunata with the robust CAE additive manufacturing tools in Simcenter enables a ‘right first-time’ approach for industrial 3D printing.”
