3DCP is an emerging technology that combines digital and materials technologies to allow free-form construction without the use of formwork, and this is a key point of this technology.

3DCP is also a type of additive manufacturing technique where the construction is through layer-by-layer addition of material, most 3D printers worldwide are extrusion based, meaning that the mortar or concrete is dispensed through a nozzle.

In this elearning video, Carmen will introduce you:

  • What is 3D concrete printing (3DCP)
  • Advantages of 3DCP
  • The 3DCP simplified process
  • The 3DCP process: material perspective Cementir’s N3XTCON 3DCP project

Carmen Maria Quist Batista

Bachelor’s degree in chemistry at the Universidad Central de Venezuela (UCV). In 2012, she started her career working in R&D of cementitious materials at INTEVEP in Venezuela and Product Specialist at ITW division for premixed UHPC products in Aalborg. She has committed to finding new applications for cement and concrete, starting with the development of slurries of oil well cement for high pressure and high temperature conditions. Since 2017, she has joined Cementir Holding as White Cement Application Specialist and plays a key role with the responsibility of developing innovative solutions for white cement based products. Her efforts are capitalizing into highly innovative concrete products, such as UHPC, GRC and 3D printing mortars.
