3D printing facing on the British building at the price of? 50
Skanska is the Swedish multinational company on construction and design. It is also big construction company which uses technology 3D of the press at a construction? 50 million structures of Bevis Marks in the center of London.
Last week eight were established on a building 3D printing facing the block in the top part tree-like Colon, on инфы the Diplomaed institute of construction (CIOB). «We are very excited with it is the company vpervy used this technology», – the design manager of Skanska and innovative winner Johnathan Inman speaks. «However at present we discuss with our clients other possibilities 3D the press».
These eight various difficult interfaces between a roof and a column at first were assumed as cast steel or welded knots, or srashchenny steel plates, but such options were more expensive in eight times or it is more difficult, or did not correspond to the esthetic construction Fletcher Priest standards.
3D the press seemed the ideal solution of identical technical difficulty. Skanska contacted Quickparts, bureau 3D of the press which prints to order components from malekhanky till the average sizes for the space sphere, defense and branch equipment honey.
Traditional ways of production needed eight various molds for these facing blocks, but, having used technology 3D of the press, the company simply made eight unique caps in coordination with their CAD files.
SLS used the device for a texture of layers of powder Nylon PA 12 nylon to build complex forms as CIOB reports. The thickness of layers reached 0,1 mm. Elements of blocks 3D were written separately, and are aggregated later. On all process of the press cunningly about 3 weeks. Eventually nylon casings in width of 600 mm and height of 800 mm were processed and painted to give them a type of the steel.
Casings perfectly proved in the accelerated tests for stability to external influence. Now construction of 16 floor commercial structures approaches the termination. The total area made 22000 square meters, opening of this commercial structure is planned to a meeting after its delivery in operation.
«3D the press is used to change not on purpose ordinary creation, but on a ceiling example we beheld on how many economic it can be. It not the bad decision for production of small party when traditional methods appear very expensive and unprofitable», – is told by Simone Hammognd, the area manager on Quickparts sales.
