A family permanently lives in a 3D-printed home

Posted on Updated on

A family permanently lives in a 3D-printed home, take a look at the ‘Yhnova project’ in France, according to Ville de Nantes, “Nantes has provided the site for a house, Yhnova Batiprint3D™, built in just a few days, thanks to a 3D printer. This innovation, of the University of Nantes, was made possible thanks to the pooling of know-how of different partners: scientists, industrialists, public and socio-economic actors.”

Do they keep the foam once the concrete is dry? I did not understand that part. Thanks in advance.

According to Prodways, “UV polymerization technology is designed to work with premium liquid resins, and also with composites in the form of pastes that contain high levels of ceramic, metal, fibers, or nano-particles and liquid resins, ceramic resins, polymer powders, Prodways is constantly working to develop new materials with unique mechanical properties (resistance and elasticity), physical properties, aesthetic properties (color and transparency, for example), and stability over time”.

3D-Printed Home For Under $4,000

Posted on Updated on

A family in France has become the first in the world to move into a 3D-printed house. The family just moved into a 3D-printed home . The house cost just $207,000, or £176,000 and took just 54 hours to build, plus another four months to add windows, doors and a roof. “For 2,000 years there hasn’t been a change in the paradigm of the construction process. We wanted to sweep this whole construction process away,”

According to Alexandria Lafci,” So having strong, sturdy walls, having a door that we can close at night — it’s something that we take for granted. Being able to lock our door and be safe. For many of these families, for years, sometimes even a lifetime, they don’t have that opportunity to have a safe shelter. So when they move into a New Story community, when they move into a safe home, families lives are transformed”.

Growing up in Jakarta’s polluted slums, Vera Mulyani loved building things. As a child, she dreamed of becoming an architect. More than two decades later, Mulyani is a self-proclaimed “Marschitect,” and spends her time brainstorming how human life might be sustained on the red planet. After studying at École d’Architecture de Nantes in France and […]

3D Printing for Aircraft Components


According to the Airbus,” 3D printing allows airlines to increase fuel efficiency by decreasing weights of parts at low cost.  Airbus has selected Stratasys technology to use 3D printing build parts for their aircraft.  This technology was demonstrated at the Paris Air Show which was held in Paris, France from June 15th to June 21, 2015. 3D printing allows the creation of parts with complex geometries used in aircraft.  The technology is used for manufacturing interior components of aircraft”.:)
