///Think Tank @ TU Darmstadt |Think Tank on Additive Manufacturing
Additive Manufacturing (AM), a production technique that can build freeform geometry by adding layers of material on top of each other. Experimenting with AM, what will it bring for the building industry? This Think Tank focus is to improve our general understanding of AM in the building industry. The possibilities and the weaknesses. Thinking about it leads to questions that need to be answered. What materials can be used? What production methods are available and suitable? Last but not least: the regulation. Does AM comply with all the demands in the standards and legislation or should new standards be developed to ensure the quality of this new technique?
Let’s be critical and realistic and try to find the real capabilities of AM in the building industry!
