3D Printing with concrete

A project looking into using ‘waste’ materials from construction and development has been undertaken. Titled Earthscrapers. By using the waste product of construction sites and land development, as the raw material for large scale 3D printers, printing in concrete and clay. 3D printer to rapid proto­type and rapid manufacture clays, ceramics and ultimately cement.

Print me a phone?

With new developments in 3D printing, research has been happening! In the near future, we may be able to print out our own electronic devices using 3D printers. That includes products with complex shapes. Optomec, based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, has developed additive-manufacturing systems for a variety of industries. It can print electronics directly onto a pair of glasses, for “augmented reality”; it can make a plastic...
