Royal HaskoningDHV, CEAD and DSM today announced that they have designed the first lightweight 3D printed FRP pedestrian bridge prototype using a composite material. It consists of a glass filled thermoplastic PET (Arnite®) and is combined with continuous glass fibres which are added in the 3D printing process. This unique combination offers high strength with extreme versatility and sustainability.

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.
