“From the shapeless earth to the earth as house shaped”.

The challenge of TECLA, the eco-sustainable 3D printed habitat, took form.

WASP (Italy’s pioneering specialists in 3D printing) has completed the printing phase of the TECLA supporting structure, the first and unique fully 3D printed construction based on natural materials and made with multiple 3D printers operating at the same time.

3D printing makes complex concrete formwork more efficient

A first-class reference: DOKA uses voxeljet for the construction of complex formworks
During the construction of the headquarters of the Sächsische Aufbaubank in Leipzig, a semi-spiral staircase with intermediate landing was to be erected, which is mounted on a supporting wall. In order to give it a gentle and even curve, a highly precise concrete formwork was required.

3D printing of complex geometric shapes for the construction industry

Various cooperation projects have already proven the effectiveness and efficiency of using 3D-printed formwork.
One of the first projects took place in cooperation with Züblin AG. For the "Stuttgart 21" project - in which Züblin AG is involved in several construction phases - columns with goblet shoulders are to be erected in the underground station. The special feature of this complex form is the double-curved surfaces in the upper section. A hybrid solution consisting of conventional formwork and moulds from 3D printing seemed to make sense here - also in terms of cost.

voxeljet AG prints complex formwork for "intelligent" concrete ceiling in DFAB (NEST)

voxeljet AG 3D-printed the highly complex formwork for the DFAB House (digitally fabricated house) research project in the NEST (Next Evolution in Sustainable Building Technologies) of the EMPA (Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research). This is a 78 m2 lightweight concrete slab as a statically optimised and functionally integrated floor slab with an unusually complex shape. 3D printing with the "powder-binding-jetting" process has once again proven its worth here.

First 3D printed buildings in Africa printed by BOD2 in Malawi to support UN’s sustainability goals

We are proud to announce that 14 Trees, a joint venture between LafargeHolcim and CDC group, is using our BOD2 printer to print low-carbon housing and schools in Malawi. The walls of a first demo building in Lilongwe, Malawi was done in just 14 hours and the walls of a first school in just 18 hours.

BOD2 3D construction printers moving into off-site precast plants in Europe

Röser GmbH in Germany just had a gantry 3D printer from COBOD installed, as the first precast plant in Europe
The first 3 floors 3D construction printed apartment building reaches its second floor

COBOD’s BOD2 3D construction printer used to make the worlds first 3D printed commercial apartment building

PERI, our German partner, is using our BOD2 3D construction printer for the project.
A total of 380 m2 of building will be made making a total of 5 apartments, which will be rented out once the project is complete.
This is neither a research nor demo project – The building is being made for profit.

WASP exhibits 3D printed bio-building at the event "We Are Nature" by Rossana Orlandi

“Small slight thoughts take shape by depositing. This sentence from the Dhammapada says that reality is the result of our thoughts and expectations. This 2,500-year-old text is the best summary of 3D printing. Each 3D printed piece is a series of information materialized , it is a”deposited thought. In WASP thoughts take shape since they are digitized. When information is transferred into the most humble raw materai "earth" , the resulting object changes its value, earth becomes home. Within 50 years we will need houses for other 3 billion human beings; WASP is depositing thoughts to shape those houses in respect of nature". Massimo Moretti, CEO WASP

COBOD’s BOD2 3D construction printer used to make the first 3D printed building in Germany

PERI, COBOD’s German distribution partner, started the 3D printing of a 160 m2 two story house in Beckum
COBOD’s success in Germany follows just months after a similar success in Belgium, and the recent announcement of a long-term cooperation between COBOD and GE about 3D printing of record tall concrete windmill towers
