The BOD2 printing in Florida, US

COBOD continues to expand by selling its BOD 2 printers and printing complex buildings and wind turbine towers worldwide. Printed Farms, a company located in Wellington, FL, partnered with COBOD to advance the construction of buildings in Florida. With the BOD 2, Printed Farms plans to create more sustainable buildings in Florida and build more hurricane and flood-resistant buildings.

They completed the 3D printing of the first 3D printed building in Florida, a 71 m2 (784 sqf) storage unit, using a giant BOD2 printer measuring 15*12,5*10 meters (50*42*33 ft) in the width, length and height. The finished building was reinforced with rebar, completed with an ICF platform system, and signed off by a structural engineer. Next steps on the way will be two intercoastal villas in Florida, now in the permitting phase. With the BOD2 printer from COBOD Printed Farms is capable of producing 180 m2 (2.000 sqf) floors on 3 story's, for a total of 540 m2 (6.000 sqf).
Fredrik Wannius, co-founder at Printed Farms said, “The construction industry is the world’s largest industry and one that has not been impacted by a technology revolution. We are here to change that. With our large BOD2 printer we can build safer homes, at competitive rates. Using COBOD’s 3D construction technology and BluePrintz, our innovative building method, we are aiming to significantly reduce the cost of building and getting ready to put the system in the hands of contractors”.
Henrik Lund-Nielsen, concluded: “We are very pleased to have sold the BOD2 printer, which Printed Farms used for the 3D printing of the first 3D printed building in Florida. This is surely not the last building, which will be 3D printed by a printer delivered by us. We are seeing a strong interest from the US market and have 3 more printers on the way to the US this year. The US is short of affordable quality housing and we have the technology to deliver precisely that in a fast and economical way using much less labor, than alternative methods”.
