Aectual, a company that produces customisable building products using 3D print robots and software tools, launched a sustainably produced 3D printed floor with terrazzo infill at Dutch Design Week in October 2017. 

Their unique digital production processes and a selection of floor patterns were showcased at the event, which was attended by several well-known architects and designers from the Netherlands.

Hans Vermeulen, CEO of Aectual, says that they make it possible for clients and designers to create their own design for spectacular, striking floors. Any design can be printed on each square metre, and clients can also choose from a selection of special patterns that are customised entirely for their building. Unique details can easily be added to emphasise special areas, routine and branding.

“This gives designers complete design freedom,” says Hans.

Industrial XL 3D print technology and Aectual’s software tools were used to create this “on demand floor” solution. The 3D printed floors are finished with a bio-binder terrazzo and installed on site. They are wear resistant and produced in an eco-conscious manner, using a bio-print plastic and recycled materials. The floor is available in a wide variety of colour options and fillings. Clients include international museums, hotels and department stores.
