3D printing building is also known as additive manufacturing in construction.
Construction printers can print the entire building on site or print only the prefabricated parts with robotic 3D printing process that prints layer by layer with advanced mortar materials.
This practice involves fabricating most of a structure in pieces for dry fit assembly to create both residential and commercial structures.
Producing individual parts or small batches by 3D printing saves time, formwork, and warehousing costs.
The modular and prefabricated nonresidential building construction market growth is expected to reach $ 88.20 billion in 2026 at a compound annual growth of 7.1%.
The innovative Buildliner design and conception aim to fully adventure the potential of 3D printing for prefabricated components, especially in terms of dry assembly, speed of implementation, reusability, recyclability, modularity, versatility, adaptability, and sustainability.
An important characteristic of the Buildliner design is the printability and possible optimization of the 3D print path. Indeed, the adopted shape allows for a continuous extrusion, facilitation of the production process, and for a more uniform quality of products. The multipurpose aspect of block design can include 3D printed aspects for structural reinforcement, thermal insulation, electrical conduit, plumbing, vents and drains.
