Indian Institute of Technology Madras facilitated a National workshop on 3D Printing in Construction today (sixteenth November 2018) in a joint effort with the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Government of India and the Government of Tamil Nadu.

IIT Madras Faculty and Alumni have been associated with research on 3D printing and effectively assembled India’s first 3D Printed Structure through IIT Madras Printability Laboratory.

Giving a window ornament raiser on Global Housing Technology Challenge of the Govt of India, Shri. Durga Shanker Mishra IAS, Secretary, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), Govt of India, stated, “We are getting contributions from worldwide players, scholarly, private division and different partners in lodging for this test and will report it soon. This test will include making ‘living research facilities’ the nation over and will be a learning knowledge for the whole nation. Anybody from private, open and scholarly areas can gain from these labs.”

Praising IIT Madras for spearheading activities in worldwide development innovations, for example, the 3D Printing in Construction, he said that Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi had called for getting the best development advances on the planet to India.

Shri. Durga Shanker Mishra, an IIT Kanpur Alumni, included that Shri Narendra Modi had propelled different missions to handle the lodging needs of India. “The goal is by 2022, we should have one house for each national where he/she can understand their fantasies.”

New innovations are opening up new chances. Lodging is an issue that requires extraordinary and inventive reasoning. By 2030, Shri. Durga Shanker Mishra said it is assessed that India is relatively going to have 60 crore individuals living in urban regions. Development of houses take quite a while and are naturally unsustainable as when development is done at site, it makes a ton of carbon emanation and results in gigantic water utilization.

Shri. Durga Shanker Mishra included, “We have to utilize diverse earth well disposed innovations. New innovations must be delicate to cost, condition, assets and scale.”

The meeting plans to introduce how Construction 3D Printing can possibly convey a monstrous lift to the moderate lodging division of India and to likewise investigate how innovation can be fused into the territory of development. Improvements in specific cement blends, robotization and auxiliary plan were exhibited by specialists in industry and the scholarly community from India and around the globe.

Talking about ‘Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana’ and the job of new innovations, Shri. Amrit Abhijat, Joint Secretary, MoHUA, stated, “This plan began in June 2015 and its central goal and vision is to give lodging to each qualified national in the nation. We require current, imaginative and green innovations for quicker and quality development of houses. Andhra Pradesh has led the pack in receiving new lodging advances, for example, RCC Monolithic Technology. We are anticipating team up with foundations like IIT Madras on new lodging innovations.”

Talking about the Role of innovation in foundation and lodging in Tamil Nadu, Shri. S. Krishnan IAS, Principal Secretary, Housing and Urban Development Department, Govt of TN, stated, “IIT Madras has presumably the best Civil Engineering Department among specialized establishments in India and will assume a key job in the Global Housing Technology Challenge. The Government of Tamil Nadu is proceeding to encourage joint effort with specialized foundations in the state to enhance administration, administration and conveyance.”

A few speakers from 3D Printing and policymakers from the Government of India and Government of Tamil Nadu alongside specialists from the U.S., Switzerland and Singapore other than agents from the development business.

Tending to the workshop, Prof Bhaskar Ramamurthi, Director, IIT Madras, stated, “India has a major test here. We need to give lodging to every one of our residents as quickly as time permits and new innovations give a chance to this however this isn’t a simple undertaking. We require advancements superior to anything what we have today. We need to have the capacity to assemble the houses quickly in light of the fact that the prerequisites are enormous. IIT Madras is exceptionally quick to be a piece of this network and willing to play a lead job and add to helping the nation confront the lodging test.”

Giving a diagram on 3D Printing and how it can profit moderate lodging and framework, Prof Ravindra Gettu, Dean (Industrial Consultancy and Sponsored Research), IIT Madras, said “The primary concern this innovation brings is customization. We don’t need to manufacture vast lodging ventures with all houses seeming to be comparative. 3D printing accommodates broadening, complex shapes and structures. Mechanical autonomy and robotization will assume a major job and we can evacuate the need for incompetent work.”

Tvasta Manufacturing Solutions, a rising added substance fabricating startup, and the Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Madras, have set up an exceptional 3D printing research center – the IIT Madras Printability Lab – to take this indigenously-created innovation to the mass market. Mr. Adithya VS, prime supporter of Tvasta Manufacturing Solutions, participated in a board discourse amid the workshop.

Dr. Shailesh K. Agrawal. Official Director, Building Materials and Technology Promotion Council (BMTPC) Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation Govt of India, talked about different development advancements. Prof. Manu Santhanam, Department of Civil Engineering, gave a point of view on the Research done at IIT Madras on 3D printing, Prof. Koshy Varghese, Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Madras, talked about constructability utilizing 3D printing. Prof. A. Meher Prasad, Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Madras, gave a review on Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum (GFRG) development.
