THE LONGEST PRINTED BRIDGE IN THE WORLD


In the Netherlands, Saint-Gobain Weber and partners builded the world’s longest 3D printed concrete pedestrian bridge. Saint-Gobain Weber in partnership with BAM (Dutch construction company) won the “Bridge Project”. Designed by the architect Michiel van der Kley at the request of the Rijkswaterstaat (government agency in charge of building and maintaining public infrastructure), the Structural engineering was done by Witteveen+Bos and the parametric modelling by Summum Engineering.

PMILESTONE PROJECT

 
In the city of Eindhoven (The Netherlands) five 3D-printed concrete houses will be built. The project is the world’s first commercial housing project based on 3D-concrete printing. The houses will all be occupied, they will meet all modern comfort requirements, and they will be purchased and let out by a real estate company.

PARAMETRIC DESIGNED SLOPE-STAIRS


When a product is often needed with slightly adjusted specifications it makes a lot of sense to use a parametric design for this. Based on a parametric design we can print these slope-stairs fast and efficient. Parametric designs in combination with 3D printing have been known to add a lot of value in the development process.

FIRST 3D CONCRETE PRINTED BRIDGE IN THE WORLD

 

The eight-meter (26-ft) bridge spans a water-filled ditch to connect two roads, and in conjunction with its partners the bridge was tested for safety to bear loads of up to two tonnes.

TRADITIONAL FORM-WORK REPLACED BY 3DCP


When replacing the material for formwork with concrete shapes that are printed in the factory and placed on site you will not only gain a lot of design freedom but also reduce the amount of work needed onsite
