Robotics in 3D Concrete Printing

Error while rendering view [FrontpageHeroBox].

3D Concrete Printing (3DCP) is about scaling up AM to print buildings and concrete elements on-site and in prefabrication facilities.

In the project N3XTCON, SDU Robotics is part of a consortium coordinated by DTI, where we investigate how to introduce model- and simulation-based methods in robotics to improve controlling and using 3DCP technologies.

 

N3XTCON - Next Generation 3D-printed Concrete Structures (2019-2022)

N3XTCON is a project funded by Innovation Fund Denmark to develop a solution that brings 3D Concrete Printing to an industrial scale. As such, we move from the current experimental/exploration phase (i.e. small-scale demo projects without reinforcement) to a real productivity-increasing solution based on reinforced concrete. The N3XTCON solution will pave the way for digital fabrication of the next generation of custom-made concrete structures that offers significant material savings and new architectural opportunities – all of it at lower costs when compared to traditional construction. In the N3XTCON consortium, SDU Robotics takes the role of analyzing and optimizing the system in use case simulations.
