3D concrete printing vs. Precast
What advantages can 3D concrete printing bring to the construction industry? Is it better to print on site or in the factory? And - will it replace precasting? These questions will be explored and answered in this presentation. The advantages of 3D printing are becoming ever more apparent and it is a billion dollar industry. Now printing is entering the built environment and we are beginning to see the first real business cases emerge. There is no doubt that its advantages in terms of single-piece production will be competitive, the question is where does its advantage end.
