Third pilot-scale 3D printing of Interreg NWE CIRMAP's project

In October 2021, CIRMAP carried out a third pilot-scale 3D printing session at ARMINES/IMT Nord Europe (France) in the scope of Interreg NWE CIRMAP. The operation was a success!

This third 3D printing campaign was jointly led by two project partners: ARMINES/IMT Nord Europe and UOrléans.

For this session, a cementitious ink was formulated using 100% recycled sand from Germany. The printed shape consisted of a 40-layer height cylinder.

These results show that the formulations developed in the laboratory allow the printing of various shapes which will be adapted to urban, memorial and garden furniture uses.
