On November 20, 2019 the symposium BE-AM | Built Environment – Additive Manufacturing will take place at the Formnext, Frankfurt. For the fifth time, Prof. Dr.-Ing Ulrich Knaack (Institute of Structural Mechanics and Design, ISMD) and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Oliver Tessmann (Digital Design Unit, DDU) invite experts from practice, research and industry  to explore the current status and future potential of additive manufacturing for construction and architecture.

Digitalisation has significantly changed design and planning in recent years. With 3D printing, this development is now migrating into the realm of construction. Materials such as concrete, clay and steel are used in additive manufacturing processes and 3D printers reach dimensions that suit the needs of construction. At the same time, complex material requirements, compliance with standards and norms and the integration of new processes into established procedures on site represent challenges that still have to be mastered.
