The US Marines has successfully completed a prototype barracks that has been, for the first time in the world, completely 3D-printed in concrete. It was printed using the world's largest concrete-fed printer operated by the Additive Manufacturing Team at Marine Corps Systems Command in collaboration with Marines from I Marine Expeditionary Force. The prototype printing process involved a computer-aided design model, concrete and a massive 3D printer, according to the Marines. They further said that if there was a robot for mixing and refilling of concrete, it could be built within a day.
