Canada to allocate $600 million for new construction tech including 3D printing Construction 3D Printing

In countries and areas like the US, Canada, China, Russia, the Middle East or Africa, the enormous availability of land often clashes with insufficient housing. New technologies such as 3D printing can help build houses better, cheaper, more sustainably and faster. For this reason, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced an over $600 million package that will research and develop new ideas and technology like prefabricated housing factories, mass timber production, penalization, 3D printing, and pre-approved home design catalogs.

UMaine recycles wind blades as feedstock for 3D printing Sustainability

According to the University of Maine (UMaine), researchers have secured a $75,000 grant to explore recycling wind blades as feedstock for 3D printing. The award is a Phase 1 winner from the Department of Energy’s Wind Energy Technologies Office’s Wind Turbine Materials Recycling Prize. Led by the Advanced Structures and Composites Center (ASCC), the WIND REWIND team’s project ‘Blades for Large-Format Additive Manufacturing’ marks a significant milestone in their mission to advance recycling solutions for a circular wind energy economy.

Abyan 3D prints water tanks for Kuwait United Poultry Company Construction 3D Printing

The world’s first on-site 3D printed large water tanks have been constructed in Kuwait, by Abyan, using a COBOD 3D construction printer – achieving a 25% savings on the amount of concrete and reinforcement used compared to casted tanks. Benefitting from the speed and design freedom of 3D construction printing, the tanks can be made faster, and more economically and sustainable than when using traditional formwork.  The tanks – 4.5m in height and with a diameter of 7m – were 3D printed with low-cost concrete in just 5 days and only contained macro fibers for the reinforcement of the tank walls and no traditional reinforcement meshes.
