3d concrete printer

Are you played off in  printing with plastic ? Let go for the real thing……. Concrete

We have got  an  industrial robot (Kuka) and we have developed a suitable concrete mix which can be 3D printed.If you want to make complex shape in concrete you need to make a  mold, this is a fairly time costly method to make something with concrete.

3D printing gives the opportunity to work freeform with concrete.

The goal:  

Our goal is to develop a 3D concrete printer, out of the Kuka robot and the concrete mix. Therefor we need to develop a rectangular print head, if possible motor driven, which turns with the corners.

Furthermore we need to develop software which can be used to translate the design into G-code and to the robot language.

... and hopefully can we print at the end of Koppelting some wonderful objects
