3D Printed Concrete Casting Molds
Sustainable construction is the new way of living and 3D Printing provides new realms in sustainable construction and design complexity.

In construction and concrete, traditionally we use formwork made out of wood, metal or cardboard. 3D Printing (https://3dprintingdubai.ae/)
However, like with most formworks, it constrains architects and designers in terms of geometric freedom for casting concrete. It can only produce round, cylindrical columns. At IRIS 3D Solutions, we use large 3D Printers to make concrete molds at any sizes and shapes. Our state-of-the-
3D Printed concrete casting molds incorporates specific joints produced for selected areas. This becomes cost-effective as it only requires small amount of 3D Printing Materials. It also provides exponential design benefits in terms of geometry freedom for columns, slabs and walls.
This way the result is an optimized structure with the same overall strength, using far less concrete. The ability to produce hollow joints and end parts allows for minimal use of printing materials as well as overall reduced use of concrete by creating more efficient structural elements.
IRIS 3D Printing Dubai, allows to create disposable molds for plaster and concrete by utilizing thin shells. when compared to sand molds, it is far easier to handle light weight plastic shells, which are also translucent in order to see inaccuracies during pouring. What is vital to understand is that most companies or manufacturers demonstrate the final result but neglect to expose other intermediary steps in the process which can make production significantly easier. One of the key benefits of the IRIS 3D Solution and its 3D Printing technology is the limited amount of support structures required during production. This significantly adds value towards a more sustainable construction solution.
