COBOD 3D printing 200m turbine tower!

COBOD announced an arrangement with LafargeHolcim, a concrete provider, and GE Renewable Energy to produce enormous wind turbine towers.

In the new project, COBOD will be using their BOD2 construction 3D printer to lay down the base segment of the tower. This is the widest portion of the tower, and since the BOD2 will be printing on site, it can be of a larger diameter.

GE will make taller wind turbines using 3D-printing

GE and its partners in this endeavor — 3D construction printing company, COBOD, and building materials company, LafargeHolcim — are working to 3D-print concrete bases that might run between 10 to 80 meters tall. They can then add a steel tower to the base to make the turbine much taller. Some turbine towers in Europe are already cast in cement on site to avoid the hassle of transporting them, but 3D-printing eliminates the labor costs that come with putting the concrete pieces together.

COBOD profitable and reports strong growth in 3D printed construction

The additive construction industry has a lot of noise and very few signals in it. Danish firm COBOD is sending a signal today that construction 3D printing is alive and kicking. The company, which started a few years ago as a spin-out of Printhuset and secured Peri Group as an investor, has been quite outspoken in its views. Now it’s also disclosed its financial results for 2019.

24 Hour 3D Printed Housing: This Has To Stop

I strongly agree with this sentiment. If there is one area of “fake news” in the 3D printing industry, it is definitely in the construction 3D printer niche.

The few bad players in the space, while attempting to score quick points, are likely to paint all players badly, and that’s not good. There are indeed useful construction 3D printers, able to produce fascinating and practical concrete structures, but they should not pay a penalty due to the misdeeds of others.

Truth in 3D Printed Construction? “Nobody 3D Printed an Entire Building”

At 3DPrint.com, we’ve always been very skeptical about the goings-on in 3D printed construction. A lot of houses have been 3D printed in 24 hours, each time while conveniently forgetting to invite the media. We’ve seen images that clearly tell us that a building wasn’t printed in 24 hours and we’ve seen a lot of claims that simply do not stand up to scrutiny….

PERI Group acquires minority share in construction 3D printing company COBOD

German PERI Group, a leading manufacturer of formwork and scaffolding systems, has reportedly acquired a significant minority stake in newly established construction 3D printing company COBOD International. The construction AM firm was established by Danish company 3D Printhuset in September of this year in an effort to refocus its construction AM business.

With its minority stake in COBOD, PERI will offer the company’s BOD construction 3D printing technology to its own clients around the globe. The investment could therefore trigger significant growth for COBOD’s own business.

A 3D Printed Building Rises in Copenhagen

The company is performing a demonstration of the concepts of 3D printing within the construction industry, with a view to having construction companies actually make use of the technology on “real” projects. 

The demonstration is to build a rather small office/hotel in an industrial area on the wet side of Copenhagen. How small is this structure? Evidently it will be only 50sm (538 sf), the size of a reasonable hotel room.

3D Printhuset Breaks Ground on 3D Printed Building

“Following our participation in the Danish government funded research project ‘3D Construction Printing’ and our research into and visits to over 35 3D construction projects all over the world, we saw the need for proving that the 3D print technology successfully could be applied for buildings, also in Europe and in full compliance with the strict building regulations we have here. The BOD building that we have begun constructing using on-site 3D printing of concrete in Copenhagen Harbour is that proof”
