SBIR Phase III Contract Furthers ICON's Space-based Construction Technology Developments & Will Target Humanity's First-ever Construction on Another Planetary Body
LENNAR ANNOUNCES VISIONARY COMMUNITY OF 3D-PRINTED HOMES WITH ICON IS NOW UNDERWAY IN GEORGETOWN, TX
Lennar and Icon's new 100-home community of 3D-printed homes combines innovative robotics, software and advanced materials to create homes that are technologically advanced, environmentally sustainable and architecturally striking.
The emergence and mature applications of metal 3D printing technology, as well as intelligent software such as CFD and CAE, are driving and leading new changes in valve design and manufacturing.
While zero-emissions equipment and waste reduction strategies are crucial, sustainability is complex, involving far more factors than construction work itself. The manufacturers that produce building materials must also improve for the industry to become truly sustainable.
Transitioning to clean wind energy could become more cost-efficient as Purdue University researchers test a new technology created by an international startup to anchor offshore wind turbines.
ICON and Lennar to Build Largest Neighborhood of 3D-printed Homes Codesigned by BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group
ICON's 3D printing technology produces resilient, energy-efficient homes faster than conventional construction methods with less waste and more design freedom - keeping construction projects on schedule and on budget.
When looking at how energy efficiency can lower housing costs, "Utility bills are the easiest target," said NREL engineer Kristin Field-Macumber. "Now we are also looking at advanced manufacturing and making production more efficient."
There are a lot of applications of 3D technology. One of the most promising ones is the use of autonomous equipment and 3D printing in construction. Learn more here about the use of these technologies in the construction industry and how they can develop in the coming years.
Palari Group and Mighty Buildings Announce World's First Community of 3D Printed Zero Net Energy Homes in Rancho Mirage, California
Palari plans to develop the 5-acre parcel into a planned community of 15 eco-friendly homes, built utilizing the 3D-printed panelized Mighty Kit system by Mighty Buildings.
The freeform aspect of 3D printing allows going beyond the rectangular builds that are so common in both modern and historical structures. That means people could eventually see building designs that fascinate and inspire them with their unusual shapes.
These construction printers will enable 3D printing- yes, printing- of entire communities, facilities and offices onsite in a matter of days.
Successful use of Carbon-composite Windform® XT 2.0 and professional 3D printing in the construction of 1P PocketQubes flight-ready
It is the first time that entire PocketQube functional prototypes flight-ready are manufactured using a Carbon-reinforced composite material - Windform® XT 2.0 - and Laser Sintering process.
The circular composite footbridge is made from a fiber reinforced thermoplastic called Arnite® which combines high performance with circularity.
Before the final printing of the building walls, we conducted several tests on the printing of different constructions to be sure in the performance of all units and compliance with the requirements of maximum height and radius of printing.
SQ4D has completed construction of the world's largest permitted 3D printed home. The home is 1900 square feet and took only forty eight hours of print time, over an eight day period. The home was entirely printed and built onsite using less than $6000 in materials.

The FAULHABER stepper motor AM3248 raises the bar in terms of performance and dimensions. Offering up to 10,000 rpm, it achieves five times the speed of comparable stepper motors. Combined with a gearhead reduction of 100:1, it supplies a torque of 5 Nm. With a diameter of just 32 mm, it is suited for a wide range of applications in areas such as aerospace, laboratory automation, the semiconductor industry, robotics and 3D printing. Learn more!
