Real Additive Manufacturing 2015
Additive Manufacturing (AM) is referred to as a very promissing technique, but what are the important functions and characteristics of produced building components. Can additive manufactured elements already be implemented widely in the building industry, or should the performance be improved first?
This Think Tank will focus on the implementation of AM in the building industry, trying to answer questions regarding durability, (anisotropic) material behaviour and what kind of materials can be used. Can different materials be combined in an AM production process, or are ‘new’ materials with matching production techniques desired is a question that will arise, but there are more challanges. During the discussion we want to invite you to be creative and think about the application of AM, but regulation is also a topic. How does AM fit in the building industry’s standards and legislation?
Let’s give the building industry a boost with Real Additive Manufacturing!
