Additive manufacturing of functional construction materials on-demand

Prize: NWOOtherScientific

Description

New functional 3D printable materials for applications in civil engineering. These smart materials are able to store heat contributing for energy savings, can self-repair and are able to self-clean, to reduce maintenance costs. The project creates a new printing system, to print these functional materials continuously, creating the whole building.
