Applicant:
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Gandhinagar 
Title:
AN APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR 3D PRINTING OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES  
Inventor(s):
SHEKHAR Shashank, KUMAR Manish 
Applicant:
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Gandhinagar 
Application type:
Provisional - 2019-09-10 
Application Number:
201921036413 
Applied at:
India 
Entered by:
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Gandhinagar 
Abstract:
An apparatus 100, of the present disclosure, for 3D printing of concrete structures, will now be described with reference to Figure 3 and Figure 4. The preferred embodiment does not limit the scope and ambit of the disclosure. Figure 5 shows a plan view of freshly printed layer 106 of construction material, wherein the printed layer 106 is surrounded by a bed 121 of granular support material. The apparatus 100 is configured to produce three-dimensional structures by depositing alternating layers of the construction material on a printing platform. Multiple layers with different shapes are placed one above the other, which ultimately result in the formation of the three-dimensional structure. 

 
THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
