The tilt-up system is flexible to produce parts for different assembly methods, the structure doesn’t have to be printed in a single piece. Instead several panels can be printed laying horizontally on the floor, this way of building minimizes the footprint of the equipment since it doesn’t have to be as tall and enables in situ 3D printing since these panels can be protected to let cure, using this method combined with the formwork technique would yield structures with a high structural integrity. 

 

Once these panels are printed and cured…

 

They are tilted up and assembled together to form a house, a building or a monolithic object.

 

These panels can be further structurally reinforced by post-tensioning, rebar can be inserted after assembly through pre-designed mating holes and then post-tensioned to reinforce.

If extra reinforcement is not needed, traditional assembly methods for tilt-up paneling can be used.
