Overview of 3D printing technologies

Professional 3D printing or additive manufacturing refers to several technologies that produce parts in an additive way. The table above provides an overview over the technologies by the type of material they work with (vertical axis) and how the parts are built out of this material (horizontal axis).

Additive manufacturing, or professional 3D printing, refers to several technologies that produce parts in an additive way. Starting point is a digital 3D model of a part, which is then “sliced” in thin layers by a specific computer software. An additive manufacturing machine is building these layer on top of another and thus is creating the physical part.

What is 3D printing?

The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object.

Precast and moulds ‘will become obsolete’

Concrete.TV spoke to Daniel van der Merwe about what he calls “the third revolution of the construction industry”. He predicts that 3D printing will revolutionize the construction process in the same way mass production ejected hand production into the age of industrialization.

3D printing allows the designer to be in total control of the manufacturing process and is in this way able to customise to the needs of customers on a scale unknown before. On-site printing of construction materials will not only make precast and moulds obsolete but will also reduce waste in a significant manner.

Van der Merwe says there is a whole new generation of building materials coming to the fore, which are not only super strong but super efficient in the way that they can be manufactured. For example, looking at buildings that may be able to “repair” themselves, buildings that might be able to change form and shape, according to changing needs. These are futuristic, he says, but very exciting possibilities.
