Ian Arthur:
3D PRINTING IN THE CONSTRUCTION SECTOR



The construction sector is facing a nearly impossible combination of challenges. Rising demand, increasing labour and material costs, decreasing availability of skilled labour, and ever more complex processes are making it  harder to execute projects resulting in increased costs to consumers and decreasing profitability in the sector. New and innovative technologies and approaches to build processes are needed to address these challenges. 3D construction printing or 3DCP is one of these solutions. By 3D printing structural walls, 3DCP provides unparalleled predictability in scope, schedule and budget, all while delivering long lasting builds with less waste. nidus3D is Canada's foremost 3D printing company responsible for the first in-country residentially permitted 3D printed structure. Informed by lean manufacturing and automation, nidus3D pursues the cornerstone principles of lean value creation, waste elimination, and continuous process improvement. The presentation will cover an introduction to the technology, a case study of the first build, and an outline of future efficiencies that can be achieved through the 3DCP form.
