|Abstract: ||A novel Concrete Printing process has been developed, inspired and informed by advances in 3D printing,
which has the potential to produce highly customised building components. Whilst still in their infancy, these technologies
could create a new era of architecture that is better adapted to the environment and integrated with engineering function.
This paper describes the development of a viable concrete printing process with a practical example in designing and
manufacturing a concrete component (called Wonder Bench) that includes service voids and reinforcement. The challenges
met and those still to be overcome particularly in the evaluation of the manufacturing tolerances of prints are also discussed.|
