3D printers are used for various purposes such as prototyping and modeling parts and products, but in recent years they have begun to be used in the fields of art, architecture and construction. In addition, the number of companies that recycle materials as part of their efforts to achieve the SDGs is increasing, and among them, pellet-type 3D printers that can easily develop sustainable products, research, material development, art, furniture, etc. and is attracting attention. In addition, 3D printers are starting to be used in civil engineering, architecture, and construction sites, as materials such as concrete and cement can be used and modeling with large cranes is now possible.
Many companies have begun to use these 3D printers to solve problems such as solving labor shortages, shortening time by converting processes that were dependent on individual skills, and reducing material costs . In this way, we will introduce four types of 3D printer series (pellet method, crane, concrete) that are attracting attention and are being used more and more.
■ Pellet method (FGF) 3D printers "4070 HDP" and "3MT HDP"
The 4070 HDP and 3MT HDP are 3D printers capable of 3D printing directly from pellets . These 3D printers have a proven track record of creating recycled products from PLA, ABS, and PP, as well as recycled food packaging materials, marine plastic waste, and fishing nets.
It is said that by 2050, there will be more plastic waste in the ocean than fish. Recycled products such as shopping baskets and stationery that reuse marine plastic waste have already been developed in Japan, making them ideal for material recycling and SDGs initiatives. In addition, since it is possible to form directly from pellets, we are also good at research and material development in which multiple materials are applied.

■ Crane 3D printer "Crane WASP"
Crane WASP uses concrete, cement, and natural materials as materials to create various buildings such as houses, lodging facilities, and shops . By combining a single module with a diameter of 6.30 meters and a height of 3 meters, it is possible to expand the molding area according to the shape and purpose of the building. Overseas, the number of houses and bridges constructed using 3D printers is increasing, and construction using 3D printers is beginning to attract attention in Japan as well.

■ Concrete 3D printer "Delta WASP 3MT CONCRETE"
Delta WASP 3MT CONCRETE can be used with a variety of materials including concrete, porcelain, cement mortar, clay, natural fibers and clay-based mixtures . With a large molding area of 1m x 1m, there is a high degree of design freedom that can reproduce curves and depressions, etc., and it can be operated 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so productivity can be expected to improve. It is ideal for civil engineering, education, universities, and art modeling.
