    3D printed houses grow in the Czech Republic

    Photo: Patrik Salát, Český rozhlas

    Sounds like science fiction? In Tršest, in the Jihlava region, one prototype of the house design has already been printed. A local engineering and construction company has been developing a unique 3D printer for four years together with specialists from the Czech Technical University in Prague. Although it is of considerable size, according to the creators, it can be moved almost anywhere and printed a concrete house on site in a matter of hours.

    “The test print of this design, on which we studied, lasted about 35 hours. This printer is different from other 3D printers. In fact, it looks like a gantry crane. The difference is that we have a moving platform on this portal, on which our printhead moves,” says Marek Stadler from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Czech Technical University.

    Next to the portal of the 3D printer in Tršest is the first prototype of the printed house.

    The print head models an angle pattern, but makes it, not like similar machines, round, but square, because the printer does not use a classic robotic “hand”, but just its own print head. The dimensions of the printer are significant, and it can turn around 122 square meters of area. In height, the structure can reach a height of five meters. So, all that is needed to start construction is a pre-prepared project on a computer. Thanks to this, with the help of 3D printing, houses can be built in a matter of days and replace a number of craftsmen of various professions.

    “It operates in the same way as conventional CNC machining centres. This means that it is controlled by G-code. If we already have the code ready, then two people are enough to work, one of whom takes care of the preparation of the mixture, and the other manages and controls the printing process.

    The vision of a more robotic construction process that would solve the shortage of workers in the construction industry inspired Podzimek four years ago to start developing a 3D printer together with experts from the Czech Technical University.

    “If I assume that there will be no workers at all, we will have no choice but to completely robotize the construction process,” says company director Martin Podzimek.

    According to him, sooner or later robotization will still prevail in construction.

    Therefore, his company wants to continue developing the 3D printer. If investors are interested, the firm plans to print more houses in the future.

    However, one should not think that this case in the Czech Republic is unique and still really resembles lines from science fiction. In the Vysočina region, trial testing of house printing on a 3D printer is currently underway. If everything goes smoothly, in two years the firm plans to print... an entire school!

    “We started with 3D printing of various benches, flower pots, urban furniture, but at the moment this is not enough for us, so we would like to move on to something more,” says ICE Managing Director Dominik Stupka.

    It is in ICE's production facility, which is equipped with three giant 3D printers, that parts of houses are made.

    “The working title of this facility is a bicycle garage. But in fact, this is a house about 3 x 8 meters in size, it consists of several segments, and we are making one of them here.”

    But before the house could be printed, the company had to build the 3D printing machine itself. The goal is to improve the machine so that it can be operated by a non-specialist. In the future, the company wants to move from a small home to larger projects. According to Tomasz Vranek, director of the company, the first printed school building in the northern hemisphere will be built exactly in Zdar nad Sazavou.

    “We have set ourselves a huge task, but we want the school to be ready in the summer of 2023 so that children can start the 2023/2024 school year in the new building.

    This is an alternative Montessori school in Ždiar nad Sázavou in the Radost district,” shares Tomasz Vranek. According to Tomasz Vranek, 3D printing technology should save time and money, as well as fill the shortage of masons in the market. Most of the development effort is planned to be focused on developing a material that will be comparable in price to existing conventional concrete, thus saving up to 70% of material and human labor, as 10 masons can be replaced by one robot In the near future in Ždiar nad Sazavou the first cafe printed on a 3D printer will also appear.

    Shelter is designed using generative design, concrete elements are printed by a 3D printer based on a multi-axial robot robot-planter. The pavilion was installed near the Stromovka park not far from the center of the Czech capital.

    The pavilion is designed taking into account the distribution of internal forces. Generative design using topological optimization allows you to create the most lightweight, but at the same time sufficiently strong elements with material savings of up to 60% and minimal manual labor costs. The pavilion was 3D printed and built by the construction company So Concrete, and the additive manufacturing phase took about thirty-six hours. The consumable material was ultra-high-strength concrete (UHPC). As a rule, this term refers to materials with a compressive strength above 120 MPa.

    “Topological optimization ensures that volume and shape contain only the essentials. Let's imagine a 3D printer, but in contrast, our robot works on six axes, so we can afford more complex shapes. The service life of the material is extreme: it is used, for example, in the construction of dams - it is a hundred years or more, ”said Federico Diaz, CEO of So Concrete.

    “I like to use the analogy with nature: the rocks are weathered and only loaded arcs remain. The same is created with this new technology, friendly to nature and the environment. We use this method, for example, for the construction of the Štvanice Bridge, the reconstruction of the Barrandovsky Bridge. We are trying to test it in various ways on the territory of Prague,” commented Adam Scheinherr, Deputy Mayor of Prague for transport infrastructure.

    According to Novinky.cz, for now this stop will remain the only one of its kind: the Prague administration has no plans to build additional 3D-printed pavilions at the moment, although the technology itself is used in other projects to improve the urban environment.

    For example, last year a playground with 3D printed parkour obstacles was opened in the Prague 11 municipal district ( in the illustration above ).

    Another interesting project completed in 2020: the Czech company Scoolpt, led by artist-sculptor and architect Michal Trpak, built a 43-square-meter 3D printed house on a pontoon. The design was demonstrated near Streltsy Island.
