Introduction: Reusable Concrete Foundation
In this instructable I will show you how I'm going through the process of creating a concrete tile.
The idea is to make a reusable concrete tile (lots of them!) to create a reusable concrete floor for a garden shed.
This has several advantages over a classic way of pouring a large concrete plate.
- Reusable (=environment friendly)
- Easy to move (by one person using a trolley)
- No need for a large concrete truck to be able to access the building site
- No waiting time for the concrete to cure (asuming it is a product that can be bought in the DIY store)
- No stress during installation
- Concrete, sand, stones
- Reinforcement mesh (8mm/15cm)
- Plastic tubes (20mm outside diameter)
- RVS wired rods 1m (M12, M14 or M16) + Nuts
- 3D printer
- Sawing machine
- Drill machine
- Concrete mill
- Concrete vibrator
Step 1: 3D Print Parts for Placeholding the Plastic Tubes
I draw the parts in Sketchup and exported them to STL
Step 2: Create the Wooden Mall
Step 3: Create the Reinforcement Grid
I welded the metal grid and bended some parts.
Also used a bold cutter.
Step 4: Assemble the Parts
Step 5: Place the Mold on a Stable Surface
make sure it's level
