Only with natural materials the Wasp Crane Gaia prints sustainable buildings. A special feature here is that the project was only realized with raw materials located at the printing site. Additive manufacturing is slowly making its way into the manufacturing processes in the construction industry. New projects are being implemented step by step. We took a close look at the Shamballa project.

The CREATE Group from the University of Southern Denmark and WASP Hub Denmark announces the completion of HORTUS_XL | Astaxanthin.g, the world´s first 3D Printed bio-reactor, designed by ecoLogicStudio and developed in a research partnership with and the Synthetic Landscape Lab at Innsbruck University. The work is featured in the exhibition “Le Fabrique du Vivant” at the Centre Pompidou in Paris from 20 February to 15 April 2019. The show, part of Mutations-Créations series and curated by Marie-Ange Brayer with Olivier Zeitoun, retraces the archaeology of the living and of artificial life. The installation is intended as speculative 1:1 scale prototype of living architecture, a new generation of thick biophilic architectural skin receptive to urban life. The structure is designed algorithmically and produced by means of large-scale high-resolution 3D printing.

The experiment over. The first 3D structural printed concrete bridge in the world (Gemert) deserves a continuation. And that sequel is there. In Eindhoven. Europe's first commercial, industrial production site for 3D printing of concrete elements for construction. More, bigger, faster and more efficient. Everything aimed at scaling up in all areas. Market leaders Weber Beamix and BAM Infra therefore opened their 3D concrete printing facility, 15 January 2019.

- Saudi Arabian construction company, Elite for Construction & Development Co., placed the order last week
- COBOD will deliver the BOD2 3D construction printer end of May and the 3D printer will be the first of its kind in the country
- The printer will be the biggest in the world and be able to print buildings of 12m (w), 27m (l) and 9m (h)
- Three storey buildings of more than 300 square meters per storey can be made with the printer in one go

IAAC and WASP develop new 3D printing strategies towards the realization of load-bearing earthen structures

IAAC and WASP present an innovative prototype of a 3D printed wall designed and engineered by IAAC and realised by Crane WASP within the Open Thesis Fabrication research (OTF), a programme of the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) focused on additive manufacturing in the field of construction.

After years of research, development, and capital investment, S-Squared 3D Printers (SQ3D) is proud to present its patent pending Autonomous Robotic Construction System, (ARCS). ARCS takes a completely new and futuristic approach to traditional construction. This machine builds everything from homes and commercial buildings, to infrastructure such as roads and bridges.
