In the construction sector, 3D printing has been implemented in various projects.
One of the recent projects is the first 3D printed parkour playground that is underway in Prague. It will be made from recycled concrete.
As part of its initiative to support innovation, the Building Society at Prague (Buřinka) is partnering with several construction partners to bring the project to life. The playground is set to open by the end of September 2021.
Czech Republic is also facing a construction crisis caused by mounting issues such as trade workers shortage, lack of automation, and rapidly rising prices of materials.
Thanks to 3D printing, this playground will be one of many that are a part of the Innovation by Buřinka initiative which is targeting affordable development.
The 3D printed parkour playground will measure 14×12 m in size.
The developers will use cast rubber throughout the impact area. Obstacles are constructed on a frame printer in collaboration with a 3D company. They will make use of a combination of material from Master Builders Solutions CZ that is poured with concrete for increased safety and durability.
Recycled concrete will be used for the foundation of the playground. While it is true concrete is a very polluting material, producing 70 kg of CO2 per ton, it continues to be one of the most used resources in construction.
However, that could change as the 3D printing industry is working towards replacing traditional concrete with more sustainable material.
The parkour playground will serve as a model for how to implement future projects.
In cooperation with Buřinka, technology innovations are now bringing 3D printing closer to people. It is continuously creating a way for other enthusiasts for sustainable innovations of their own.
Having a model during the design process improves understanding of a project.
The information contained within a 3D model provides designers to accurately coordinate utilities, grading, and system routing information. These are what allows a building to function properly.
Engineers and trades need to properly size and locate equipment to maintain functionality as well as understand how a project is intended to sit on a building site to put forth a proper site design.
By having a model, designers are able to put forth a more accurate design to ensure the project functions properly and lasts for decades.
The more accurate the information is at the start, the better decisions the solutions that can be designed. These decisions allow projects to meet building codes and requirements for functionality that are critical for both owners and users of a building.
CAD makes it possible for designers to make large changes with relative ease as the drawings are based on 3D geometry instead of linework.
3D2GO’s team has the experience to understand the vision of innovative projects, accurately capture and analyze them. Moreso, we provide a realistic model for your design and presentation requirements.
