Contour Crafting Corporation (CC Corp) is an early stage company with the mission to commercialize disruptive construction technologies, starting with Contour Crafting (CC), CC Corp’s flagship technology. CC Corp was recently founded by Dr. Behrokh Khoshnevis, the inventor of the Contour Crafting in collaboration with major international.
The Contour Crafting technology scales up automated additive fabrication from building small industrial parts to constructing buildings. Optimal machine operation planning for Contour Crafting benefits the technology by increasing the efficiency of construction, especially for complicated structures. The research reported here has aimed at.Behrokh Khoshnevis's 101 research works with 2,642 citations and 13,421 reads, including: Perspectives on a BIM-integrated software platform for robotic construction through Contour Crafting.Contour Crafting is a novel technology in construction industry based on 3D printing that uses robotics to construct free form building structures by repeatedly laying down layers of material such.

UPPER AND LOWER GANGES CANAL The upper ganges canal is the original ganges canal, which starts at the Bhimgoda Barrage near Har Ki Puri at Haridwar, running at the centre of Roorkee, at right bank of canal is Roorkee city and at left bank is Civil Lines, IIT, Roorkee, Bengal Sappers and Minors, traverses Meerut and Bulandshahr and continues to.
This paper outlines a research methodology aimed toward the development of a framework for understanding the critical aspects of interlayer adhesion in Contour Crafting. A series of experimental case studies regarding Contour Crafting and concrete are introduced. The main objective of the proposed research is to develop of an experimental.
Contour Crafting: A Future Method of Building Dong Min Kim (Dane) Writing 340 Illumin Article June-12-2013 Abstract Building a house using 3-D printing technology is available to people in near future. Contour crafting is the method that can build a house quickly, safely, and economically.
Abstract: This paper presents our experimentation and modeling efforts to study the pattern of material flow in the extrusion and deposition stages of the Contour Crafting (CC) process. Specifically, we performed a preliminary finite element analysis (FEA) of extrusion and deposition mechanisms with clay as the fabrication material. Using the.
This may explain the slow rate of growth in construction automation. Contour Crafting (CC) is a recent layered fabrication technology that has a great potential in automated construction of whole structures as well as sub-components. Using this process, a single house or a colony of houses, each with possibly a different design, may be.
We believe that the contour crafting technology is a very promising method for such construction. 7. Conclusion. Due to its speed and its ability to use in-situ materials, contour crafting has the potential for immediate application in low income housing and emergency shelter construction. Construction of luxury structures with exotic.
Further research on country-specific regulation fosters the hypothesis that Contour Crafting is more likely to succeed in Saudi Arabia than in China. Contour Crafting’s global investing strategy will likely be through a joint venture partnership with governments via sovereign funds. Since capital partnerships seek to utilize the technology to.
The research reported here has aimed at providing a systematic solution for improving the overall system efficiency and realizing the Contour Crafting technology for building customdesigned houses. In Part-I of this paper, an approach is presented to find the optimal tool path for the single nozzle Contour Crafting system. The model developed.
Our research also addresses the application of Contour Crafting in building habitats on other planets. Contour Crafting will most probably be one of the very few feasible approaches for building structures on other planets, such as the Moon and Mars, which are being targeted for human colonization before the end of the new century.
The research reported here has aimed at providing a systematic solution for improving the overall system efficiency and realizing the Contour Crafting technology for building custom- designed houses. In the Part I of this paper an approach is presented to find the optimal tool path for the single nozzle Contour Crafting system incorporating the physical constraints of the technology and.
Behrokh “Berok” Khoshnevis is the President and CEO of Contour Crafting Corporation (CC Corp), the Louise L. Dunn Distinguished Professor of Engineering and the Director of the Center for Rapid Automated Fabrication Technologies (CRAFT) at the University of Southern California.He is active in robotics, and mechatronics related research and development projects that include the development.
This proposal uses a unique architecture weaving an automated building technology called Contour Crafting with designs for assisting rapid buildup of an initial operational capability lunar base. Using CC technology, this proposal intends to draw up a detailed plan for a high-fidelity simulation at NASA’s Desert Research and Technology.
This paper will focus on the implementation of a contour crafting system to a 3D concrete printer. The goal is to create a system which gives the user a greater degree of freedom in designing different forms, and that improves the aesthetic of the finished product. This is achieved by using trowels that can be angled at the sides of the nozzle.
Contour Crafting is a novel technology in construction industry based on 3D printing that uses robotics to construct free form building structures by repeatedly laying down layers of material such as concrete. It is actually an approach to scale up automatic fabrication from building small industrial parts to constructing buildings. However.
