Construction and Design Manual
3D printing is said to revolutionise architecture: Thanks to new technologies, plastic, concrete, or metal can be extruded in a liquid state and then hardened into its final form. With this Construction and Design Manual, architects and researchers Kostas Grigoriadis and Guan Lee present a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the topic. The book consists of detailed case studies of 3D printed buildings, the materials that can be used in large-scale additive manufacturing, and a breakdown of the corresponding design guidelines, limitations, and achievable build dimensions. In addition to these, the focus is on the environmental aspects of the method, the lifecycle of 3D printable materials, and the embodied energy of 3D printing compared to conventional building construction.
