Putzmeister and ZÜBLIN 3D print supporting walls for STRABAG warehouse 3D Printer Hardware

Layer by layer, the new STRABAG BMTI (STRABAG Baumaschinentechnik International) warehouse in Stuttgart’s Weilimdorf district is growing upwards. Together with Putzmeister and its KARLOS mobile concrete printer, ZÜBLIN has developed an innovative construction method that is unique in the world. As part of their long-standing collaboration, the two companies are pooling their innovative strength to take 3D concrete printing to a new level. Their research aims to offer customers an even more flexible and sustainable printing process in the future.

Canada to allocate $600 million for new construction tech including 3D printing Construction 3D Printing

In countries and areas like the US, Canada, China, Russia, the Middle East or Africa, the enormous availability of land often clashes with insufficient housing. New technologies such as 3D printing can help build houses better, cheaper, more sustainably and faster. For this reason, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced an over $600 million package that will research and develop new ideas and technology like prefabricated housing factories, mass timber production, penalization, 3D printing, and pre-approved home design catalogs.

UMaine recycles wind blades as feedstock for 3D printing Sustainability

According to the University of Maine (UMaine), researchers have secured a $75,000 grant to explore recycling wind blades as feedstock for 3D printing. The award is a Phase 1 winner from the Department of Energy’s Wind Energy Technologies Office’s Wind Turbine Materials Recycling Prize. Led by the Advanced Structures and Composites Center (ASCC), the WIND REWIND team’s project ‘Blades for Large-Format Additive Manufacturing’ marks a significant milestone in their mission to advance recycling solutions for a circular wind energy economy.

Abyan 3D prints water tanks for Kuwait United Poultry Company Construction 3D Printing

The world’s first on-site 3D printed large water tanks have been constructed in Kuwait, by Abyan, using a COBOD 3D construction printer – achieving a 25% savings on the amount of concrete and reinforcement used compared to casted tanks. Benefitting from the speed and design freedom of 3D construction printing, the tanks can be made faster, and more economically and sustainable than when using traditional formwork.  The tanks – 4.5m in height and with a diameter of 7m – were 3D printed with low-cost concrete in just 5 days and only contained macro fibers for the reinforcement of the tank walls and no traditional reinforcement meshes.

Construction 3D printing is looking up as ICON launches PHOENIX Construction 3D Printing

Construction 3D printing is looking up as ICON launches PHOENIX Construction 3D Printing

For many years 3D printed buildings were just one-floor houses. Then COBOD started working on two- and three-story habitable structures. Now, just after French firm Constructions-3D set a world record for the tallest 3D printed building with its construction 3D printing robotic arm, US firm ICON is getting in on the height game and introducing PHOENIX, its new multi-story robotic construction system.


Kalbod Design Studio blends 3D printing with traditional architecture Professional Additive Manufacturing

In an innovative step towards sustainable living and modern architectural design, the Zephyr House project – by Kalbod Design Studio, part of the Kalbod Construction Group – has made significant strides in integrating advanced technology such as 3D printing with traditional architectural elements, according to Amazing Architecture. This initiative, which is expected to materialize at some point in the future, aims to address the need for energy-efficient and environmentally friendly housing solutions in today’s rapidly changing world.

ICON unveils new 3DCP hardware, software, and materials Construction 3D Printing

ICON, a of advanced construction technologies and large-scale 3D printing, has released a new suite of products and technologies designed to further automate construction, including a radical new robotic printer that enables multi-story construction, a new low-carbon building material, a digital catalog for residential architecture with more than 60 ready-to-build home designs, and an AI Architect for home design and construction.
