According to foreign media New Atlas, a Russian company has announced the launch of the world's largest 3D building printer, capable of printing the entire six-story building. The S-500 3D building printer was developed by the Russian AMT-SPETSAVIA Group, with a building volume of approximately 11.5. x 11.0 x 15.0 m. However, AMT-SPETSAVIA indicates that the height can be extended to 80 meters.
The company also announced the launch of the S-300, which prints a building with a volume of only 11.5 x 11.0 x 5.4 meters. According to the manufacturer, this is equivalent to a two-story building on a 120-square-meter site. If each floor is allowed 3 meters ( 10 feet), the extended S-500 will be able to print out a 26-story building - allowing it to enter the skyscraper area.
The company says the machine can print at a speed of 2.5 cubic meters per hour of concrete. 'We have been asked to provide a multi-story building solution,' said AMT-SPETSAVIA General Manager Alexander Maslov in a press release. 'Now we are full Confidence in the existence of such a solution! In the process, we considered the desire of the development company, while maintaining the inherent reliability of the equipment, easy to manage and maintain.
The company's first 3D building printer will be shipped later this year.
