Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is currently developing a concrete deposition system for infrastructure-scale printed objects. This system, called SkyBAAM, uses a cable driven motion platform to manipulate the print head. This work focuses on the general aspects of the system architecture, including arrangement of the cable driven platform, general high-level control methodology, and system accuracy, along with concrete deposition methods. Results and demonstration prints will be shown.
