COBOD demonstrates design know-how with dwell 3D printing of 4 tiny properties


At the international Bautec design exhibition in Berlin, Danish 3D printing certification building firm COBOD supplied a are living demonstration of its technological know-how by 3D printing certification the walls of 4 tiny homes for the length of the party, from 18 to 21 February. 

The demonstration was concluded employing the BOD2 3D development printer, positioned at the stand of PERI Team, an intercontinental producer of formwork and scaffolding, and the German distributor of COBOD’s 3D printers. 

With the dwell demonstration, COBOD intended to offer an uncut example of its construction 3D printing certification technologies in action to readers of the exhibition:  “It is so easy to video clip film a 3D development printer in motion and then edit out something unplanned occurring during the printing to generate a nice looking movie in the stop,” responses Henrik Lund-Nielsen, CEO of COBOD. “There are so numerous examples out there with seriously edited and manipulated written content, far from what is going on with the very same printer in serious existence printing.” 

“When you print live, it is not possible to cover something. With this live printing we are documenting, that our technological know-how has the high quality, robustness and steadiness to perform hour immediately after hour, day soon after day.”

The BOD2 3D printer

COBOD, initially recognized by Danish 3D printing certification reseller, provider service provider and developer 3D Printhuset, released the BOD2 3D printer in 2018 as an up grade to the BOD, which developed the initial 3D printed developing in Europe in 2017, found in Copenhagen. 

The BOD2 3D printer is a modular equipment able of printing properties with measurements of 12m in width, 27m in duration and 9m in peak.  The dimension of the 3D printer can be prolonged with modules in width, duration and height of 2.5 meters. Its most ability can accommodate 6 modules for width equaling 15 meters, and 4 modules in peak, coming up to 10 meters, whilst there are no limitations for duration.

It has a potential maximum pace of 100 cm/next, even so because of to constraints brought on by elements and pumping machines, it has as a result significantly realized a optimum speed of 40 cm/2nd. On top of that, COBOD also statements that the BOD2 can generate a few storey properties in 1 go, with every storey able of becoming additional than 300 square meters in length. 

COBOD has sold 7 of its BOD2 design 3D printers. Customers contain the likes of Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and construction firm Elite for Development & Enhancement Co. DTU is applying the technique for R&D applications, in purchase to develop new production procedures for the building business. Elite on the other hand purchased the BOD2 3D printer in order to fulfil Saudi Arabia’s Eyesight 2030, which aims to improve the country’s financial state and housing as a result of pillars of innovations, i.e., modern day construction techniques. 

Also, Belgian sustainable building business Kamp C is also working with the BOD2 system as portion of its €1.6 million job to create the correct infrastructure for additive production certification in building. COBOD to start with won the Kamp C C3PO job deal in 2018.

Enhancements to the BOD2 

As properly as performing as the COBOD’s distributor for Germany, Switzerland, and Austria, PERI Group is also an investor in the corporation, getting acquired a stake of COBOD in 2018.

At PERI’s stand at Bautec, COBOD was able to publicly existing improvements it made to the BOD2 3D printer for the 1st time. This includes an up to date extrusion method, that equipped the printed walls with a smoother finish. Also, COBOD made a new strategy for setting up the BOD2, involving premade concrete toes unto which the Z-axis are mounted. This cuts down the set up time by 50 per cent, making it possible for the printer to be established up in a new location in 4 several hours. The BOD2 3D printer brought to Bautec was 5 meters in width, duration and top.

Henrik Lund-Nielsen concluded the announcement by explaining: “We use this situation to also present some of the improvements, that we have designed considering the fact that we introduced the BOD2 last yr. Specially I am glad to present, that our finishing high quality of the 3D printed walls now is so great, that only minimal plastering is desired afterwards to get there at the sought after high-quality. All in all we are incredibly content to be equipped to showcase our technological innovation reside listed here at Bautec and by the a lot of people we have here paying out fifty percent an hour or far more on having videos and images, I do think the guests are also incredibly delighted with what they see”.
