System Approach to 3DCP: Profitability through Process Optimization

Background A severe labor shortage and rapid urbanization have created a growing need for construction automation. Various tools and methods such as Digital construction, prefab, and 3DCP (3D Concrete Printing) are available for automating construction activities. These tools were invented decades ago, but 3D-Printed homes have become popular in recent years. Around the world, few …

3D Printed Homes: Current Technology & The Future

Automated construction methods such as prefabs and 3D printing are gaining popularity, mainly because of high home prices. Concrete 3D printing has proved its feasibility through various projects around the globe. However, 3D printing is still in a pioneering stage, many iterations and experiments are needed for perfecting this technique. The results of the 3D …

My Construction Printer Operator Test with CyBe

While in the Netherlands, I visited CyBe construction. With their robotic arm mortar printing system, CyBe has completed projects around the world with many more underway from their various clients/partners.  The training was a 2 week event starting with just learning the basics and watching the very experienced CyBe team operate the robotic arm they …
