Kewl! I like that “Concrete Cube”. reminds me of the “Power Cube” http://opensourceecology.org/wiki/Power_Cube from the “Global Village Construction Set” http://opensourceecology.org/wiki/Global_Village_Construction_Set, which is something any seasteading effort intending to be sustainable needs to incorporate. In fact, this Concrete Cube could teach the GVCS a thing or two. http://opensourceecology.org/wiki/Cement_Mixer
A Material Handling System would almost entirely obviate the need for the Bobcat driver. It would also make the recipe more consistent batch to batch. Keep the hoppers full with regular deliveries and let the system handle itself.

Ellen The concrete cube is loaded by a bobcat, material is dumped on the top of the unit and a conveyor on top moves the material into the mixer. once mixed you still need to move the concrete to the casting area. My bobcat holds 1/3 yard so 3 scoops to load the mixer and 3 to unload, each bucket moving a little over 1000 lbs with little to no effort, just sitting in the airconditioned or heated cab of the bobcat!
And yes the global village construction set is awesome!…
1 thing at a time…. so we design with modules that bolt together or fit together, come on people, lets all pull in one direction.
