How about 3D printing a 5 story building?

Moar!

Just waiting for the thread, "hey, look at my 3D girlfriend!" And then the BOTD threads.

I wonder if it will collapse faster than a conventional Chinese building...

GD will just hook up two Tacoma's and a Jeep and pull it back into place.


I don't think those piles reached bedrock, were they trying a "Velcro" type method?

Those piles lack reinforcing steel. I've done a lot of pile foundation designs, and not one was ever even close to bedrock.

The building seems to be intact, just a piling/footing failure.

That particular failure, believe it or not, was initiated by the large pole of dirt to the right of the building. Lateral pressures, coupled with unreinforced caissons and weak and saturated soils.

The same setup is evident in the next building back. Everything was OK until they excavated on the left side of the foundation.

I have no idea what that means, but you are obviously a CE or such? when can you get your kickstarter/gofundme crowdfunding up and running to get 3d printed residences herer in the us?

The pilings look shallow to me (as a formwork carpenter) for a 13 story building. Im not a pilebuck but the normal depth of the poured in place pilings Ive seen in sites I've been in were 30-50 deep based on the rebar cages they were sticking in them. High rises and an elevated freeway bridge job.
