CyBe RC 3D printer
In December 2016, Dutch firm CyBe Construction unveiled a new mobile 3D concrete printer, the CyBe R 3Dp. While not the first-of-its-kind, the new printer is considerably larger than previous mobile models, and is described as ‘the next step on the way to a fully automated integrated 3D concrete printing system’.
In November 2016, the model underwent initial testing, and CyBe now plan to transport the printer to the Dubai R&Drone laboratory for the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, where it will be used to print the elements (inner and outer works like walls, floors, etc.).
The printer’s technical specifications include:
- Printing speed: 200 mm/s
- Layer height: 30 mm, thanks to fast-curing CyBe MORTAR
- Printing range: 2.75 m
- Maximum height: 4.5 m
- Operators needed: 2 people
CyBe believe 3D concrete printing can open up all sorts of new and innovative project solutions that traditional building methods can’t complete, such as automatic building processes, complex form designs, and the ability to reduce time, cost, CO2-emissions and waste.
