3D Printed Concrete Houses: Actual printing/construction of a model house for low-income housing in Africa is happening at the Experimental Base of Wuxi Research Institute of Applied Technologies Tsinghua University in Beijing, China.


3D Concrete Printing for Multiple Applications: Korodur out of Amberg in Germany and CyBe Construction from Oss in the Netherlands have found plenty of use for 3D printing. Contractors can employ the processes for both bigger construction projects or for smaller jobs such as outdoor seating areas, including printing tables and benches.


Texas Houses: Developer 3Strands and construction technology company ICON have built four 3D-printed houses in Austin, Texas, from concrete that's designed to cope with extreme weather. "ICON's proven 3D-printing technology provides safer, more resilient homes that are designed to withstand fire, flood, wind and other natural disasters better than conventionally built homes," the company told Dezeen.


SQ4D is printing walls for homes in New York.

3D Printed Housing: Recently, showcased a 3D-printed home in Riverhead, New York. Built by SQ4D, a New York construction company that specializes in 3D technology, the house is the first of its kind to land on the multi-list, but it’s unlikely to be the last.

Rapid, Sustainable Construction: Qatar’s first facility for 3D printing concrete and buildings is now operating, say researchers from Texas A&M University at Qatar who are focusing on the manufacturing aspect of structures and developing new materials for 3D printing.


3D Printed Bridge: The world’s longest 3D printed concrete pedestrian bridge is being built in Nijmegen, Netherlands, and printed in Eindhoven, where the 3D printing facility of BAM and Weber Beamix is located. Summum Engineering was responsible for the parametric modeling, in order to elaborate and rationalize the freeform geometry, designed by Michiel van der Kley.
