An Overview Of 3D Concrete Printing & Modular Silos

Three-dimensional printed concrete (3DPC) is a “new” construction method that utilises concrete or mortar mixtures in an extrusion method using algorithm-controlled specialist nozzles. The system, also called building additive manufacturing (BAM), produces layer upon layer in a topographical-type rendition of the required structure with materials fed into the printing devices from modular silos. As the industry becomes more sophisticated with each new build, how does it fit in with other methodologies? Why Use 3DPC/BAM? Over the years, the specialist nozzles have become more versatile in their applications and smoothing or [...]
