German company sets record with Europe’s largest 3D Printed building in just 140 hours

Posted on

The biggest 3D-Printed building in Europe was recently created in just 140 hours. The building, called “The BOD” (short for “Building on Demand”), is located in Wallenhausen, Germany, and was created using a 3D printing process known as “Continuous Digital Light Processing” (CDLP).

The BOD building measures 160 square meters (around 1,720 square feet) and has two stories. It was designed as an office and conference space and featured a modern and minimalist design. The 3D Printing process used to create the building involved printing layers of a unique concrete mixture, which took just 140 hours.

3D Printing in construction has been growing in recent years, as it offers many potential benefits, including reduced costs, increased speed of construction, and the ability to create complex and customized designs. The creation of the BOD building is a significant milestone in developing 3D printing technology for the construction, and we will likely see many more 3D-printed buildings in the future.

3D-Printed luxury home in Marfa, Texas goes on sale for $900K

Posted on

According to reports, the 3D-printed luxury home is being sold for at least $900,000. The home was designed by a company called Icon and was built using their proprietary 3D printing technology, which allows for the construction of homes in a matter of days instead of months.

The 3D-printed home in Marfa is a single-story, three-bedroom, two-bathroom property that spans over 1,000 square feet. The home features an open-plan living and dining area, a modern kitchen, and a spacious outdoor patio.

While the price tag may seem high, proponents of 3D-printed homes argue that they offer a more sustainable and cost-effective alternative to traditional construction methods. The technology has the potential to reduce waste and lower the cost of construction while also allowing for greater design flexibility.
