Bridging the gap between Construction, IoT and 3D Printing

The HT2C project promotes communication between construction and high-tech industries to bridge an existing knowledge gap hindering the uptake of Internet of Things (IoT) and 3D printing by the construction industry.
At present, IoT and 3D printing are topics that captivates experts from the construction business. However, civil engineers and architects still have to figure out the best way(s) to exploit these technologies, reason why several national R&D projects are in progress. In addition to R&D, it is vital that construction experts share knowledge with others so 3D printing and IoT can be better understood and explored effectively. As a result, new ideas will occur in the interface between the involved sectors, creating a market focused on high-tech construction and new R&D projects.

Bridging the gap between Construction, IoT and 3D Printing

  1. 1.  Main activities: Knowledge transfer between project participants  Goal: link construction and high-tech industries to enable the development of new or improved technologies in construction Construction High-tech industry Concrete technology Prefabrication Formwork production Design concepts ICT Additive manufacturing Robotics (Automation) Control systems  Benefit: new ideas in the interface between the construction and the high-tech industries
  2. 2. Discussion topics within the use of 3D Printing in construction?  Understand the challenges preventing the uptake of 3DP in construction and suggest ways to overcome the identified challenges  Identify areas where 3DP can be more beneficial than traditional construction methods (balance production cost, time, and added value)  Possibilities from a design perspective – How and when architects would take advantage of these technologies?  Possibilities from a production perspective – How and when are engineers considering the use of rapid manufacturing when it comes to building construction?
