Abstract
The aim of this paper is to present the results of explorations in robotic construction methods executed at the University of Michigan. It discusses an approach to solve the problem of slumping in large format 3D printing spatial concrete structures or shells without molds. This paper describes a material approach introducing magnetic forces in order to control the deposition of the concrete.
