Paper Title
Development Of A Viable Concrete Printing Process

A novel Concrete Printing process has been developed, inspired and informed by advances in 3D printing, which has the potential to produce highly customized building components. While it is still in their infancy, these technologies could create a new era of architecture that is better adapted to the environment and integrated with engineering function. This seminar describes the development of a viable concrete printing process with practical examples. Concrete Printing was the focus of this seminar, which uses an extrusion technique to deposit the required build material. The process consists of data preparation similar to most AM processes, material preparation, and printing using a cement-based mortar, which satisfies specific characteristics and mechanical properties. The details of the process, materials and prototype system have been described elsewhere. 3d printer can built structures at very high speed compared to traditional methods .The challenges met and those still to be overcome particularly in the evaluation of the manufacturing tolerances of prints are also discussed.
