Pshtiwan Nasruldeen Shakor recently submitted a thesis, ‘ Investigation of Cementitious Materials and Fibre Reinforced Mortar in 3D Printing ,’ to the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, at the University of Technology Sydne .

 .

Continuing the trend for exploring the benefits of 3D printing in the construction industry, Shakor highlights features like greater speed, affordability, and latitude in design; still, however, the author states that the construction industry remains ‘far behind in the development of practical 3D printing machines.’

 .

Researching concrete and mortar in 3D printing, Shakor points out that traditionally, concrete casting to create molds is time-consuming and expensive—resulting in many standardized elements. “This method has consequences for repeated and over-dimensioned elements. The lack of freedom in form is another restraint. Despite these […]
