BuiltWorlds Announces Realities of 3D Printing Event in Chicago

What are the The Realities of 3D Printing in the Built Environment? How does this impact one of the most important industries in our society?

For the crucial answers to these questions, BuiltWorlds embraced the next generation members of our community. In a joint venture with Northwestern University’s Mechanical Engineering school, we have united for a crash course into how the current two main challenges facing 3D Printing in the built environment can be overcome: methodology and structural integrity. Along with a panel of industry experts, we’ll examine the endless spools of filament surrounding present and future uses for 3D printing and Additive Manufacturing.

Presenters Include:

  • James Wolff, CEO, D-Shape Enterprises - They boast the largest 3D printer using concrete in the world and aim to revolutionize how the buildings get built.
  • Dr. Behrok Khosnevis, Founder, Contour Crafting - Khosnevis’ computerized construction technology won the grand prize among 1000+ globally competing technologies in the 2014 NASA Tech Briefs Create the Future design contest. Applications of this technology include commercial construction, affordable housing, disaster relief and more.
  • Maged Guergis, Designer, SOM - Maged played a prominent role in the Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy (AIME1.0) project, a joint project between SOM, DOE, and Oak Ridge National Lab. Highly energy efficient, the 3D-printed building was designed by SOM to produce and store renewable power and to share energy wirelessly with a 3D-printed vehicle, which was developed by the DOE.
