I am looking for information on "Nilcon Prestressed Concrete". I am working on an existing Clinic that utilizes "16" Nilcon Prestressed Concrete" floor and roof panels. The details indicate the panels are 4' wide, 16" deep, and consist of panels with a large, single void in the center of the panel, similar to hollow core precast, but with only a single core. I have yet to find any load tables or literature on this material and was wondering if anyone has worked with it in the past.

The function of a circuit breaker is to provide overload (thermal) and short-circuit (magnetic) protection to a circuit and its downstream components. A circuit breaker functions like an airbag in a car, protecting circuit components and people by tripping the circuit to interrupt the current flow if it detects a fault condition in the control system.

As with any new technology, getting into large-format 3D printing begins with investigation. The first question may be a simple one: what does “large-format” mean? For 3D printers, “large” is a relative term. Many extrusion-based (FFF) 3D printers are referred to as desktop machines, because they fit on table space. Some of these have very respectable build volumes – but when it comes to “large-format,” the machines will need their own dedicated floor space. Large-format 3D printers have significant build volumes and are most often found in professional settings, like manufacturing facilities and R&D centers. Download Now
