Let's Play Rescue The Princess!: 3-D Printed Concrete Castle Playhouse

3d-printed-concrete-castle-1.jpg

This is the castle playhouse made by Minnesotan (that's somebody from Minnesota) Andrey Rudenko using 3-D printed layers of concrete. Andrey built his own concrete-extruding 3-D printer and printed the pieces to make this castle to test it out. Looks like it works. Eventually, Andrey hopes to use the printer to print his own 2-story home. Lofty goals. Now, let's play rescue the princess. You go sit in the castle and pretend you're being held there against your will by an evil sorcerer, then I will come rescue you. *hours pass* "I thought you said you were coming to rescue me?" Yeah yeah yeah -- after my shows are over.

Keep going for several more shots and a video of a wall section being printed.

    That is certainly extrudinary.

    I bet a fat kid the Kool-Aid man could bust through that like tissue paper.

    OH YEAAAAH!!!

    You're right. That's more like stucco than an actual concrete building. Rebar and meshing are used for a reason. I would not want to try to live in a house or even put a roof on that thing.

  • Cody

    Yeah, I wonder how you could get rebar and still get the "print" head in there. This is still awesome, though.

    I was looking at the video for the house print. I wonder if it is going to be like those styrofoam houses. The outer walls are a thick styrofoam and then when a wall is built a special set of metal mesh supports is inserted. After that concrete is poured in. Those houses are rated to withstand a cat5 hurricane.

    Ct5 hurricane? That's a lot of cats!
