summary In this paper, a novel design of 3D printing system is presented. We proposed a large-scale 3D printing system with tensegrity structure and cablesuspended parallel robotic system(CPR). It has an advantage in the construction field, especially for building habitats in extreme environment such as Mars. Compare to a currently used 3D printer, and it has lightweight and a wide range of workspace. We implemented a 3D printer with CPR and tensegrity framework. The project is an initiation of a long-term research; accordingly, this paper limits its work scope by demonstrating the 3D printability of the system with CPR and developing a tensegrity framework. To validate 3D printability, we independently tested two scenarios. One is a table-size 3D printing validation as a fast prototype, and the other one is a small building-size 3D printing for testing large-scale 3D printability. As a validation, we used an LED bulb attached on a 3D printer head to trace its movements in workspace. We illustrate that the use of CPR is highly effective and scalable system for a large-scale 3D printing; additionally, tensegrity could be an effective alternative for its structural framework.
