Over the past 4 years the researchgroup Industrial Design has developed their own 3D Concrete printer knowledge resulting in the “Saxion 3D betonprint lab” (the 3D concrete printing lab).

One of the last projects ‘Green Dome’ showcases some of the posibillities possible with the current technique.

The time has come to take on more challenging problems for 3D Concrete Printing (3DCP).
How can we design for 3DCP without massive trail-and-error?
How can we use 3DCP no longer as a research goal but as a production technique?
How do we incorporate 3DCP on the buildingsite?

These questions and more will be answered trough the research, development and realisation of realworld applications.

Requested study programmes: 

Chemistry (C): The concrete recipe is very critical and changes according tot he different requirements. Someone who understands process and chemistry Is crucial for any good concrete print.

Applied Computer Science (TI): The robotarm, software language, slicer software, etc. are becoming more and more sophisticated and having someone with indepth knowledge of software architecture, programming and coding is preferable.

Mechatronics (MT): The Robotarm, software, interaction of the design with the robot are not at a plug-and-play stage. Someone who is used to working with robotics and translating and objective to machine understanding wil greatly enable the group.

Mechanical Engineering (WTB): The Robotarm, software, interaction of the design with the robot are not at a plug-and-play stage. Someone who is used to working with robotics and translating and objective to machine understanding wil greatly enable the group
