Conventional Construction and 3D Printing: A Comparison Study on Material Cost in Jordan
An understanding of 3D printing procedure, mechanism of action, and its impact on the future of construction and architecture through economical, structural, and environmental parameters is achieved and leads to encourage engineers and contractors to take this subject into account for construction in Jordan.
3D Printing Concrete: A Review
3D Printing concrete is new developed technology with no reinforcement or by providing reinforcement as like cable in the year 1987. The printing concrete is printed with the printer in different
Adaptable Tool-Path Planning Method for 3D Concrete Printing Based on the Mapping Method
This paper proposes tool-path planning based on mapping method, which integrates the rheology and necessary continuity of concrete materials into the printing process parameters, improves the mutual adaptability of printing process and material characteristics, and improves the continuity of printing, the compactness of filling, and then ensures the stability and durability of printing structure.
