This 3D-Printed House Only Takes One Day to Build – Review Geek
Made from sustainably-sourced natural wood fibers and resins.
You can 3D print almost anything these days. We see electric bikes and entire homes created with all types of different materials. Speaking of houses, researchers from the University of Maine think it found a solution to the national housing shortage. 3D-printed homes using all-natural materials.
The University’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center (ASCC) recently shared details on what it’s calling the world’s first 3D-printed home made entirely of bio-based materials. We’re talking about all-natural wood fibers, bio-friendly resins, and claims the house is entirely recyclable.
While we’ve seen wild homes manufactured with a 3D printer using clay or a unique concrete process, this house doesn’t use any of that. Instead, the team created four “home modules” from wood fibers, 3D-print each module, then transported those modules to the housing property.
The 600-square-foot prototype “BioHome3D” features 3D-printed floors, walls, and roofing. The team even used 100% wood insulation, meaning it’ll stay warm in the winter and cold in the summer.
Interestingly, this 3D-printed wood home only takes a few hours to build. Once those main…
