Entrepreneur and Startup Advisor Andrew Weinreich Focuses on 3D Printing in Future Homebuilding for Podcast Episode

It took me an embarrassingly long time to finally try listening to a podcast: I’m a fairly visual person, and I didn’t think I would enjoy just sitting and listening to something that didn’t have any video to go along with it. My husband, who knows my deep and (possibly?) unsettling love for true crime stories, […]

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 […]

3D Printing is Behind Miniature Malaysian Wonderland

Today it seems that 3D printing is making the world go ‘round in so many ways—even those created in miniature. While we see the technology making substantial impacts in industry, many other fields are being affected positively too. Both architecture and construction are great examples of this, allowing for prototypes and models to be created […]

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 […]

Meet The Jetsons as Imagined by Arconic in the 3D Printed Future

I remember watching The Jetsons back when I was a kid – at the time, the technological world the show had built seemed highly fantastical and unrealistic. Just a couple of decades later, though, a lot of it has actually become not just realistic, but real. Some of the amazing contraptions the Jetson family used […]

Chinese Construction Company 3D Prints an Entire Two-Story House On-Site in 45 Days

How long does it take to build a house? Obviously it depends on the size of the house and other factors, but somewhere around six or seven months is a good estimate. Chinese construction company HuaShang Tengda thinks that’s pretty funny, and have essentially laughed in the face of traditional construction by 3D printing a 400-square-meter, two-story […]

3D Printing in Concrete to Expand Substantially, Projected to be $56.4 Million Industry by 2021

Construction is one of the main areas 3D printing has been projected to impact substantially, all along. It also tends to be the example of choice for critics asking what happened to all those lofty architectural plans that have yet to be seen on the ground. There aren’t 3D printers in every home yet, and […]
