Europe’s Largest 3D Printer Made History by Creating an Entire Two-Story House

This is Europe’s biggest 3D printer and it has wowed internationally by making an entire two-story house. To top it off, it’s reportedly the largest house printed in one piece – with a fixed printer, in history. This impressive digital feat was accomplished by a Belgian sustainable construction company, Kamp C.

This Record-Breaking 3D Printer Is Bigger, Faster and May Transform Manufacturing as We Know It

A research team at Northwestern University has developed a record-breaking 3D printer that is bigger, faster, and more precise and it can print an object the size of an adult human in just a few hours. Using HARP (high-area rapid printing), the new technology allows for an unprecedented quantity of high-resolution manufacture products on-demand.

3D-Printed Homes Made of Rice, Clay and Recyclable Materials Are Energy-Efficient, Architectural Stunners

WASP and MC A – Mario Cucinella Architects teamed up to construct eco-sustainable 3D printed houses using a 3D printer called a Crane WASP. This includes a Gaia that uses natural waste materials, including raw earth, straw, and rice husk and a Tecla, a new circular housing model, created using entirely reusable, recyclable materials taken from the local terrain.
