Calculate print time per layer


This formula will calculate the print time per layer, and thereby helps to find the sweet spot of the material.

When 3D printing with concrete, the time of each layer is very important when designing the mixture of concrete. The mixture needs to be settled enough to hold its form, but wet enough to mix with the next layer of concrete. 

Therefore the total square meters of walls, as well as print time, determine the design of concrete mixture.

Please fill out all the yellow input fields, and find the result in the grey field.

NB. We assume the external wall to have an outer- and inner wall. Therefore it is multiplied by 2.

30 cm/s is recommended. (Min 10 cm/s, printer can do max 100 cm/s, but materials for such speed will be a challenge)
