A professor of Applied Mechanics at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands has developed a model for determining the dimensions and printing speeds needed to keep 3D printed concrete walls stable.
Construction 3D printing is an exciting area of additive manufacturing, but 3D printing with concrete-type materials doesn’t come without its problems. This is basically because 3D printed concrete is asked to do a lot more work than it is used to: while normal concrete deposited in formwork can harden over several weeks, 3D printed concrete needs to carry the burden of the next layer almost immediately after its deposition.

3D Virtual Reality to democratise design and production – Orlando Sardaro, Design8
Orlando Sardaro is the General Manager of Design8. He studied Industrial Design Engineering at the University of Technology in Delft, in the field of Innovation Management. For almost 20 years now he is actively selling and supporting 3D software to designers of all kind. He recognises that 3D printing requires different skills from both design software and designers. Today, besides being managing director of Design8 Orlando Sardaro is solidThinking distributor for the Benelux Region bringing freedom of form and generative design to designers and makers. He will speak about 3D Design at the 3D Printing Design & Engineering Conference, on April 17, 2018, in The Netherlands.
