Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, shows growing potential as a technique for fabricating parts out of plastic or metal. But what about building structures out of concrete?

AEM member Oshkosh Corp. and Oak Ridge National Laboratory have teamed up to develop new 3D printed concrete technology, and the early results show the potential to reshape segments of the construction industry.

In this episode, Oak Ridge's Dr. Brian Post provides an update on the project's status and explores the possibilities that 3D printed concrete could unlock, while AEM members speculate on what it means to them.
