MARINE CORPS BASE QUANTICO, Va. - U.S. Marines with 1st Marine Logistics Group work together to secure a concrete bridge support column during a 3D concrete printing exercise Dec. 12, at Camp Pendleton, California. Working with Marine Corps Systems Command’s Advanced Manufacturing Operations Cell and the Army Corps of Engineers, the 1st MLG used the Automated Construction of Expeditionary Structures—or ACES—printer to conduct 3D concrete printing of the bridge and evaluate emerging technology for future application in Marine Corps engineering operations.
