How 3D Construction Printing Forces the Digitization of the Industry

3D Construction Printing — additive manufacturing driven by 3D designs — forces the early digital resolution of many constructability issues that might otherwise go unaddressed until much later, if ever. Designing and engineering with additive manufacturing in mind also begs comparisons with conventional approaches to design and execution that opens up ways of looking at processes through a new lens. Digitizing the “how” of construction elements production by 3D additive manufacturing can suggest broader design optimizations that may have positive impacts across the board.  Our speaker will explain.


Presenter:
Matt Carli, Director of Innovation and Strategic Planning, Laticrete International


Learning Objectives:

  1. Understanding of Digital Fabrication in Construction in particular 3D printing
  2. Challenges in benchmarking, product certifications, and general overview to challenges incorporating innovation into the built environment
  3. State of the union to where 3D technology is and potential use cases
  4. Outlook of digital fabrication and what to expect in the coming years
