After radically transforming the worlds of design and production in sectors such as car manufacturing and aeronautics, digital technologies are now entering the construction sector. But the question is how to automate one of the last low-qualification job sector without causing human problems, or developing new trades and new jobs? How do we shift indoor industrial technologies to the construction site? How do we build tomorrow’s sustainable habitat? The basic idea of this project is to use I-Site Future as a place where the partners can develop research around construction scenarios in which automated and digitised processes are used to construct and maintain the digital city of tomorrow. The models and tools are available, there is convergence between industrial and academic interests, and demonstration prototypes will be produced.
17th October 2022 – DiXite Perspectives Workshop
The DiXite project team hosted a workshop the 17th of October 2022. 6 actions allowed to develop a pluridisciplinary research around construction scenarios where automatized and digitalized processes are used to build and maintain tomorrow’s city. The workshop presented a summary of these outcomes and will provide perspectives to this platform.
13th of November 2020 – 3D Concrete Printing Online Symposium
The chair founded by Fondation des Ponts, LafargeHolcim and Ecole des Ponts ParisTech will host an online and free symposium the 13th of November 2020. Led by experts, it aims at studying the design of 3D-printed concrete housing structures, embracing material, process, structural optimization and engineering issues, including life cycle analysis. Registration mandatory.
24 October 2019 – HAL Robotics Day
HAL Robotics robot control specialists introduces the new HAL Robotics Framework. Dedicated to versatile robot programming, the HAL Robotics Framework allows engineers, architect and others to simulate complex and non-repetitive robotic manufacturing scenarios. Expert users present innovative projects : concrete 3D printing, machining of 3D printed parts…
31 January 2019 – Machine vision for construction sites Workshop
DiXite organizes a first ideation workshop January 31st with Machine Vision for construction sites as a theme.
Workshop and Symposium DiXite3dPrint : 15-18 January 2019, Champs-sur-Marne
The DiXite3dPrint Symposium is an initiative of the DiXite collaborative research project. Over two days, the event will bring together the main French players, researchers, teachers and industry, in order to review advances made in additive manufacturing for construction. A 2-day on-site workshop organized by the Ecole des Ponts ParisTech, the Advanced Master – Mastère Spécialisé Design by Data and with the support of the DiXite project, will be offered before the conference around the Build’in robotized printing platform.
