3D print houses in China.

Posted on Updated on


According to Yingchuang,” the company in China. They are building houses with 3D printers. They use environmentally friendly materials for 3D printing houses such as recycled construction waste and industrial waste also, they use a large 3D printer which is 20 feet tall, 33 feet wide, and 132 feet long. The house-making process takes 24 hours. They make pieces one by one and assemble the house. This process is good for construction workers since they are not exposed to hazardous material. This process is also environmentally friendly.¨

Polymer-based 3D printing from Carbon3D.

Carbon3D has announced a new approach to polymer-based 3D printing. Their approach is based on CLIP (Continuous Liquid Interface Production) technology which continuously grows objects from resin instead of the conventional approach of layer by layer printing. Joseph DeSimone, co-founder of Carbon3D and Chancellor’s Eminent Professor of Chemistry, UNC, mentioned in his Ted talk in Canada, that this technique was inspired by the film Terminator 2, in which the T-1000 robot rises from a pool of metallic liquid. According to DeSimone, objects created by conventional 3D printing are weak because they are made up of multiple layers obtained by 2D printing over and over again. In contrast, CLIP-based 3D printing is 25-100 times faster and generates much stronger objects.
