The US Army is 3D Printing Concrete Structures

Additive manufacturing processes—also known as 3D printing—are being used to make everything from medical devices to engine components, and now the U.S. Army is even using employing a similar technique to build concrete structures. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has devised a system that allows them to create lightweight concrete structures quickly with a… Read more »

Researchers are 3D Printing a Reinforced Concrete Bridge

3D printers are useful for more than just making small plastic parts. Recently, a team of researchers at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands began 3D printing reinforced concrete components for a cycling bridge in an effort to test out new applications for 3D printing technologies. In fact, this isn’t the first time… Read more »
