Printers designed in Russia, headquartered in the united states. Many projects including placing in multiple rounds of the Nasa space 3d printing competition and a very large office building in Dubai.

Wasp 3D

3d printer company that developed a large 3d printer called the Delta Big. They are capable in printing many materials including a simple mixture of dirt and straw that is extremely affordable and good for the environment.

Cobod

The bod 2 printer is quite an advanced gantry system. Cobod has the intention of doing module 3d printed construction. They are a one of the market leaders in Europe.

Constructions 3D 

Constructions 3D has a robotic arm printer that resembles a boon. It stands uniquely like a spider and is capable of printing in quite a large radius.

Twente Additive Manufacting

Medium to large building components like steps or intricate window designs

Sq3d

Biggest 3d printed house in America

Winsun

Chinese company that has received over $200 million in investment. They have done many projects but do not have the most advanced technology especially considering the total investment. 

Betabram

Prints square walls

Dshape

Enrico Dini was the first person to ever 3D print a house in concrete.

Mx3d

Printed a bridge in metal

Xtree

Prints small parts of buildings as a subcontractor rather than trying to build the entire thing at once.

ESA

European space agency did a project with Foster & partners to make this rendering of what a 3d printed moon base could look like.

Used Cobod printer for bod project

3DSD

Shotcrete extruded onto premade dome, hard to fit into the 3D printing category

AI SpaceFactory

Tera concept for earth and also printed mars habitat concepts

Armatron

Patent on membrane between layers and wall stack system

Arup

Geopolymer Institute

Studying the future of geopolymer concrete better fire resistance

Imprimere AG Big 3D Printer

Round print suspiciously little footage 

Kamp C

Construction company experimenting with the tech 

KKrane

Unique mixture to print that has different properties that concrete making it better for printing

Kuka

Big robotics company that makes many of the robotic arm printers

  1. Hello Mr Gross,
    I liked your approach and information here.
    I am a master student in Germany and doing my master thesis on 3DCP subject. Would it be possible to receive some authentic information to include in my thesis(Literature review & introduction chapter) and include you as an authentic resource?
    it will be great if we can continue via email.

    Ankiet.
