How does 3D Concrete printing work?
We receive a 3D-model which can be made with one of the many CAD tools. With the help of our own software-tool (CyBe CHYSEL) we are able to convert a digital 3D model into the printing instructions (the .Gcode) needed for the 3Dprinters. The printer is operated by just two persons; one uses a control unit to calibrate the right position. The other operator oversees the mixing part that mixes the CyBe MORTAR which is used as the material for the printer. After the print has started everything goes automatically. During this time we wait till the print is done and give ourselves the opportunity to get a cup of coffee.
Is my product or project suitable for 3d concrete printing?
At the moment there is a vast amount of possibilities for using CyBe’s 3D Concrete printing technology. 3DCP enables free-form design, which makes it possible to build complex forms. To check if your product or projects is suited all we need is a 3D-model or design. We will verify whether your plans are printable for us.
Is it possible to distribute your products to my country and what are the terms of delivery?
We distribute our products worldwide. The printers are modular, which means they can be separated in smaller parts for transport easily. Additional costs such as transportation and import taxes will be added to the printer and are the buyer’s responsibility. The terms of delivery also depend on the location to which the product needs to be transported.
What are the advantages of 3D concrete printing in comparison to traditional construction methods?
Traditional construction processes take up a lot of time and labor costs. Due to engineering and preparation time the construction takes a longer time span than 3D Concrete printing. Since we are able to automatize this process the time preparing a print is reduced a lot.
The final costs of 3D concrete printer are reduced too. This can be up to -70% depending on the product you want to print. This cost-reduction is the result of factors like low labor costs and material costs.
In addition 3Dconcrete printing enables new and other design possibilities. Giving architects more freedom in their design. Still there are many new design and engineering possibilities not yet being discovered and since the technology is being further developed new possibilities will occur.
