The Possibilities of 3D Printing for Formwork Construction

Classic formwork is designed to place straight walls at a 90-degree angle to each other. Whenever more complex structures or surfaces are planned, special formwork quickly becomes necessary. This requires additional planning, engineering and can turn out to be quite cost intensive. voxeljet Binder Jetting however is a ideal solution for complex formwork and facade elements for concrete casting, saving up to 10 times in assembly times.

The German formwork expert Deutsch Doka, tested the application on real construtction sites and in this webinar shares the collected experiences and findings as well as further information about the possibilities of 3D printing for architects, formworkers and civil engineers.

Our Speaker

Helmut Hilliges, Senior Project Technician

Helmut Hilliges (born in 1974) joined Doka in Maisach, Germany, in 2002 as a trained master carpenter and studied construction engineering. He headed the Special Formwork Construction Department for seven years before moving to Applications Engineering as a project engineer in 2010. As project manager, he oversaw the use of an additively manufactured formlining for concrete casting in a unique pilot project during the construction of the new main headquarters of the Sächsische Landesbank in Leipzig.

Tobias King, Director Application & Marketing

Tobias King started at voxeljet in 2008 as a project engineer in the mechanical engineering and after sales department. He then took over responsibility for the Sales and Marketing department. Since 2014, he has held the position of Director Marketing & Applications. As an industrial engineer by education, he is in charge of the project management for alternative applications of the Binder Jetting 3D printing technology. These include the use of additively manufactured formwork elements for concrete casting and architecture.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • which geometric benefits 3D printing offers for highly complex elements
  • how 3D printed elements can be combined with conventional formwork
  • how to handle 3D printed parts on large construction sites
  • about the high weather resistance of 3D printed parts in changing weather conditions
  • how integrated functions, e.g. clamping holes and handles, can cut assembly time up to 10 times
