Live Entirely Off the Grid in a 3D Printed PassivDom Smart House

Live Entirely Off the Grid in a 3D Printed PassivDom Smart House

I’ve often dreamed about living “off the grid.” Particularly when I’m stressed, I fantasize about building a cabin in the woods, far from other humans, and just living a quiet, disconnected life among the trees. Of course, that’s not exactly realistic – my work depends on the Internet, and I do like social interaction most […]

European Institutions to Gather in Copenhagen for a Look at How 3D Printing is Disrupting Construction

Since the very beginning of our species, humans have been required to find ways to shelter themselves from weather and predators. We’ve been wonderfully creative and resourceful in terms of making use of our surroundings – we may have started out by sheltering in natural structures like caves, but once we developed tools, we started using […]
