Title: Fabric Forms for 'Crete
Post by: Stabby_McShiv on September 27, 2011, 01:31:07 PM
I spotted this article in the April 2011 Issue of Make magazine (Vol.26).  It's an interesting overview of how to use fabric forms for concrete and I can see some serious potential for cranking out some shreddable stuff using it.  I could even see it being useful for repairing existing stuff that is gnarled up.  If you show up at your local DIY spot to find a shreddable 10 ft concrete penis feature sticking out of your janky QP/barrier than I extend my apologies in advance...

Very cool stuff.  My buddy showed me some dudes house in Central VT a year ago.  There's a guest house in the back that is in the form of a 4 story circular tower.  Each level is a room, and on the outside there is a concrete column that runs all the way from the ground to the roof...all 4 stories.  It was made with a fabric form and it's badass.
