Traduzir a página

Explore the possibilities that 3D concrete printing brings!

After plastic, ceramic and metal, the world of 3D printing has now turned to concrete! Complex, futuristic geometric shapes, mass personalization, the opportunity to save raw materials and reduce waste, unprecedented construction simplicity and speed - there are a whole host of benefits to 3D concrete printing!  

As part of the 3DCP Challenge, VINCI Construction, supported by its partner XtreeE, wants to give students from design, architecture and engineering schools a chance to let their imagination run wild and is asking them to submit a 3D model of their concept that they want to see printed!


Your challenge? To use the geometric freedom that 3D concrete printing brings to make our cities, homes and infrastructure more visually appealing, more user-friendly and more effective!
