About the project

 This project aims to design a simple, low-cost gantry system to allow an optimal concrete mix, specifically mortar, to be 3D printed. Different concrete mixtures will be researched, tested and critically analysed to find an optimal design. The gantry system will be configured using a combination of up-cycled and new components on a limited budget. A completed aim is when both the gantry system and an optimal mortar mix are determined, regarding viscosity and extrudability. A sample will be printed which can be tested following Eurocode standard.
