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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
