Preserving our Global Heritage Through 3D Imaging – commentary by tech entrepreneur and art collector John Dodelande

After news of the Notre Dame’s fire in 2019, everyone has been left to wonder if it can even be restored at all to its previous state. Luckily, Andrew Tallon scanned the entire cathedral in 2015, creating a perfect digital copy. With 3D technology to digitize art and landmarks, we now have a way to preserve our global heritage and historical landmarks.

The world's first 3D printed school made by 14Trees (LafargeHolcim) with a COBOD printer was inaugurated in Malawi, Africa.

- The students were installed on 21 June

- The school was printed in 18 hours, according to 14Trees and LafargeHolcim.
- Malawi's director of education impressed with school
- Africa has a huge deficit of schools and classrooms; 36,000 in Malawi alone, UNICEF says
- 14Trees wants to expand use of 3DCP technology in other African countries

Habitat for Humanity uses COBOD’s 3D construction printer to print affordable housing in Arizona

In the face of an acute affordable housing shortage, Habitat is looking for game changing scalable and affordable home-ownership solutions. The lack of affordable housing in the Phoenix metro is at an all-time high and Habitat continues to explore innovative ways to address the critical issue.

3D printed concrete formwork

Create complex concrete formwork faster and cheaper with digital production
Concrete formwork in construction can account for 40-60% of the total budget, especially for complex shapes like curved concrete formwork. Some designs such as organic geometries, double curved surfaces and voids are simply not feasible as they require highly skilled labour to produce bespoke formwork, resulting in high costs, long lead times and wasted materials.
