Posted · 3D printing for building construction

Hello all,

May I know if there are resource information or referral of any supplier that are specialized in 3D printing for building construction?

I am not referring to the design modelling or architectural plans but I am looking for giant 3D printing solution for building construction, is there anything related happening in the world? Any related information is welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,

Anthony

    Ultimaker is not targetting that field but you can easily find some 3d printing companies who are doing this!

    For example WASP in Italy is working on a giant Delta printer to print houses. And several buildings have already been "printed" in china

    But I think they need some scientific work to test all of this. Before printing a house some structural test must be made, also materials tests. But I really think this is the future.

    I am sure within 10 years we will have the firsts real results.

    Thank you for all the useful info.

    I also did a google research. I saw that there is a China company called WinSun Technologies. It had projects for 3D-printed house in Dubai and in China. Is it trustworthy?

    Any of you have an idea how much a construction scale 3D printer cost? Just a rough figure is fine. And it would be great if there are photos on the outlook of such printers.
