In collaboration with our academic partners CREATE SDU, we have been researching on structural optimization for 3d printed concrete elements. This research case study aims at maximizing the printing height of our elements whilst minimizing the use of materials.
On average, a 2.4m height x 0.4m diam. column only took 15 minutes to print.
During the research, we have been developing various parametric software to automatically generate custom shapes and patterns for the columns resulting in an efficient design to fabrication workflow.
