Topic. History. Pick seating technologies. 1952. 1995. Robotic. Bricklaying was conceptualized, and explored, in the 1950s. And related technology, development, around automated, construction, began in the 1960s. With pumped concrete and isocyanate, foams. Development. Of automated, fabrication, of entire buildings, using slip forming, techniques and robotic assembly of components akin. To 3d printing were pioneered, in Japan to address the dangers of building high-rise buildings, by Shimizu, and Hitachi, in the 1980s. And 1990s. Many. Of these early approaches, to on site automation, founded, because of the construction bubble, their inability, to respond, to novel architectures, and the problems of feeding and preparing, materials to, the site in built-up areas. Topic. Early, developments. 1995. To 2000. Early. Construction 3d. Printing development, and research have been underway, since 1995. Two. Methods were invented, one by Joseph peg nur which was focused on a sand cement forming, technique which utilized, steam to selectively, bond the material, in layers or solid parts though this technique was never demonstrated. The. Second technique contour, crafting by, Barrow Kosh novice initially, began as a novel ceramic, extrusion, and shaping method, as an alternative, to the emerging, polymer and metal 3d printing, techniques and was patented, in 1995.
Kosh. Nevus realized that this technique could exceed these techniques, where current. Methods are limited to fabrication, of part dimensions, that are generally, less than one meter in each dimension. Around. 2000. Kosh novices team at USC, verda B began to focus on construction, scale 3d, printing, of cement issues and ceramic pastes, encompassing, and exploring, automated, integration of, modular reinforcement, builds and plumbing and electrical, services, within one continuous, build process, this. Technology, has only been tested at lab scale to date and controversially. And allegedly form the basis for recent, efforts in China. First generation. 2000. To 2010. In. 2003. Rupert, sauce secured funding and formed the freeform construction, group at Loughborough University UK. To explore the potential for upscaling, existing, 3d printing, techniques for construction, applications. Early. Work identified. The challenge of reaching any realistic break-even, for the technology at the scale of construction, and highlighted, that there could be ways into the application, by massively increasing, the value proposition, of integrated, design many functions, one component in. 2005. The group secured, funding to build a large-scale construction 3d, printing machine using off-the-shelf components, concrete, pumping spray concrete gantry, system to explore how complex, such components could be and realistically, meet the demands for construction. In. 2005. Enrico Dini Italy patented, the D shaped technology, employing, a massively scaled powder jetting bonding technique over an area approximately six, metres by 6 metres by 3 metres this.

Architectural, firm proposed a building construction 3d, printer technology in January, 2013, that would use lunar regolith raw materials, to produce lunar, building structures, while using enclosed, inflatable, habitats, for housing the human occupants inside the hard-shelled printed lunar structures. Overall. These habitats, would require only 10% of the structure mass to be transported, from Earth while using local, lunar materials, for the other 90% of, the structure mass, the. Dome-shaped structures. Would be a weight-bearing catenary, form with structural, support provided, by a closed cell structure, reminiscent, of bird bones in. This, conception, printed. Lunar. Soil will provide both, radiation. And temperature installation. For. The lunar occupants. The. Building technology, mixes lunar material, with magnesium oxide, which will turn thee moon, stuff into a pulp that can be sprayed to form the block, when. A binding, salt is applied that converts. This material, into a stone like solid, a type. Of sulphur concrete is also envisioned, tests of 3d printing of an architectural, structure with simulated, lunar material, have been completed using a large vacuum, chamber in a terrestrial lab the.

In scaled droplets, under the surface via capillary forces, the. Printer used was the D shape a variety of lunar infrastructure, elements have been conceived, for 3d structural, printing including, landing pads blast protection walls roads hangars, and fuel storage in. Early 2014, NASA, funded, a small study at the University, of Southern California. To further develop, the. Contour, crafting 3d, printing technique. Potential. Applications, of this technology include. Constructing, lunar structures of a material, that could consist of up to 90, and lunar material, with only 10% of the material, requiring transport, from Earth NASA is also looking at a different technique that would involve the sintering of lunar dust using low-power 1500. Watt microwave energy, the. Lunar material, would be bound by heating to 1200. To 1500. Degrees, Celsius, two thousand one hundred and ninety two two thousand, seven hundred and thirty degrees Fahrenheit, somewhat below the melting point in order to fuse the nanoparticle, dust into a solid block that is ceramic like and would not require the transport, of a binder material from, Earth as required by the Foster, + Partners contour. Crafting and D shape approaches, to extraterrestrial. Building printing one. Specific, proposed plan for building a lunar base using, this technique would be called sinter hab and would utilize that JPL, six-legged, athlete robot to autonomously, or teller robotic, ly build lunar structures. Topic. Concrete, printing. Large-scale. Cement, based 3d printing, disposes, the need for conventional, molding by precisely, placing, or solidifying. Specific. Volumes of material in sequential, layers by a computer-controlled, positioning. Process, this. 3d, printing approach consists, of three general stages, data preparation concrete. Preparation, and component, printing for path and data generation, a variety, of methods, are implemented for the generation, of robotic building, paths a general. Approach is to slice a 3d, shape into, flat thin layers with a constant, thickness which can be stacked up onto each other in. This method each layer consists, of a contour line and a filling pattern which can be implemented as honeycomb structures, or space-filling, curves, another. Method is the tangential, continuity. Method which produces, three-dimensional, building paths with locally varying thicknesses, this. Method results in creating, constant, contact surfaces, between two layers therefore, the geometrical, gaps between two layers which often limits the 3d printing process will, be avoided, the material, preparation, stage includes, mixing, and placing the concrete into the container, once. The fresh concrete has been placed into the container it can be conveyed through the pump pipe nozzle system to print out self compacting, concrete filaments. Which can build layer by layer structural. Components. In the, additive processes, pumpability, and the stability of the extrusion, is important, for the applications, of mortars these. Properties will all vary depending on the concrete mix design the delivery system and the deposition device. General. Specifications of, wet concrete 3d, printing, are categorized, into four main characteristics. Pumpability. The ease and reliability with which material is moved through the delivery system. Print. Ability the ease and reliability, of depositing, material through, a deposition device. Build. Ability, the resistance, of a deposited, wet material, to deformation, under load. Open. Time the period where the above properties, are consistent, within acceptable tolerances. In the printing step a control, system is required to execute the printing process, these. Systems, can be generally split into two categories, gantry, systems, and robotic arm systems, the. Gantry system drives, are manipulator, mounted onto an overhead to locate the print nozzle in XYZ, Cartesian coordinates. While robotic, arms offer additional degrees, of freedom to the Mosel allowing more accurate, printing workflows, such as printing with tangential, continuity, method, moreover. Multiple. 3d printing, robotic arms can be programmed to run simultaneously resulting. In decreased construction. Time, finally. Automated, post processing, procedures, can also be applied in scenarios, which require the removal of support, structures, or any surface finishing.
