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.

The National Housing and Industrial Development and Logistics Program has announced the Kingdom’s first house built using 3D printing technology. The program’s aim is to keep abreast of technological progress worldwide in the construction industry, and to promote the adoption of innovative techniques and the Saudization of the industry in the Kingdom.

In order to promote the use of additive manufacturing in the construction industry as well, Formnext and the Technical University (TU) Darmstadt have agreed on a joint venture. This means that in the next few years the construction industry will become a stronger theme of the leading international trade fair for additive manufacturing and the next generation of industrial production. At the same time, Formnext is getting involved as a sponsor of the Built Environment – Additive Manufacturing Symposium (BE-AM) launched by TU Darmstadt, which brings together key players from the construction industry and architecture on a regular basis and concerns itself extensively with the additive development in this sector.

Apis Cor participates in NASA’s Phase III 3D-Printed Habitat competition to become the first to start construction on Mars

Apis Cor and SEArch+ participate in the contest "3D-Printed Habitat Challenge", organized by the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The main goal of the NASA competition is the promotion of additive technologies that are necessary to create an inhabited environment on Mars.
