To celebrate the installation of the concrete façade mullions digitally fabricated using Smart Dynamic Casting in the DFAB House, we have released a new extended video showing the entire process from start to finish. Smart Dynamic Casting (SDC) is a continuous robotic slip-forming process that enables the prefabrication of material-optimised load-bearing concrete structures using a
Smart Slab is the world’s first full-scale architecture project whose formwork bases on large-scale 3D sand printing.
After the timber modules had been assembled, the project team celebrated the topping out.
The Smart Slab ceiling elements were successfully assembeled within a week on the construction site.

NCCR researchers demonstrated within a media event how robots could revolutionise timber construction.
In order to keep everyone interested informed about the ongoing construction of DFAB HOUSE, the NCCR Digital Fabrication launched this project website. Welcome!
After a successful start of the construction work, the project team for the first time informed the media about the DFAB HOUSE project. The event was met with great interest.
The NCCR Digital Fabrication, ETH Zurich and numerous industry partners together celebrated the construction start of the DFAB HOUSE.
