A new video published by 3dpbm’s contributor Jarett Gross explores the concept invented by an interesting Russian startup called Printed Dome. that developed a proprietary construction 3D printing approach to make—you guessed it—3D printed domes.

“Printed dome created their machine from the ground up as opposed to repurposing similar equipment like many companies have done”, Jarett explained. “This gives them major advantages in simplicity which is a core tenet of good engineering.”

The company developed a construction technology that allows, in the shortest possible time, to erect inexpensive, better quality, and reliable buildings right on the construction site.

The main tool for building a house is the company’s proprietary boom construction 3D printer. Unlike analogs, it has a simple and reliable design due to the original technology of its application – the shell is printed from the center of the building, layer by layer around the printer, as it prints the walls and roof.

The foundation can be made using standard technology or using a printer for printing permanent formwork with subsequent reinforcement and filling with heavy concrete. In the process of printing, the outer and inner shells of the building can be simultaneously produced with the filling of the space between them with insulation.

During the printing process, cross-links can be laid to help bond the inner and outer walls.
Thus, we get a warm wall ready for final finishing with windows formed during the printing process by doors and technological holes for laying communications.
