Dr. Kedar Sharma, Associate Professor in Civil Engineering department, J K Lakshmipat University, Jaipur was the guest speaker. Several challenges related to construction industries are addressed by using 3D printing technique in the webinar. The 3D printing in construction has already been proven to have a huge number of benefits, from an economical manufacturing process to endless design possibilities. 3D printers can print continuously with some companies already offering a build time of 12-24 hours for a single-storey property.
