New York architect Adam Kushner and his company D-Shape submitted in August 2014 3D printing projects, the scale of this is unprecedented in the field of 3D printing. Kushner in upstate New York that a piece of land was bought with his wife. They plan to 3D print out a 2400 square foot (223 square meters) of houses, but also 3D printing houses, sheds, swimming pools.
Today, the project further. MecklerMedia Corporation 3D printing held last week on week, Kushner company’s CEO James Wolff for this ambitious project was discussed for more details.
Kushner said: “we will local printing houses, so they can blend with the surrounding environment. “If this method works, you could become the future construction trends.
Unlike other 3D printer models extruded concrete, D-Shape printers use site materials and magnesium base Binder for printing, no need for manual Assembly, move print parts. Specific to the project of Kushner, is to print materials gravel support structure and the structure of the House.
“Important is not only a good process, but also have a good product. “Kushner said,” we can achieve the effect of light, transparent design, is stuck with the other construction methods. ” Diane Von Furstenberg iPhone
Kushner to print the “Mansion” in order to live, but also to trial, adjusted the printer so that in future competitions. Print pool is the first step, then a swimming pool houses and sheds, 2400-square-foot House finally is the biggest challenge.
“If we can print out the pool, then we can use the Print method to repair bridges, bulkheads and other underwater structures to meet global demand. If we can print out the pool house, then closed the structure slightly, was transformed into emergency shelters and low-cost housing. ”
Kushner’s projects for some may be a little ridiculous, think he’s grandstanding and trying to figure out a different Villa. In fact, Kushner is thoughtful, his project aims to create a cheap method of construction to meet the people’s demand for housing, especially in third world countries is to improve housing, full of humanitarian care. Also, print materials, so it will not cause pollution or damage to the environment, is truly “green” buildings.
To sum up, the advantages of 3D printing houses construction environment safer, the reduced labour, custom made cost reduction, construction precision, materials, waste reduction, materials cheaper and faster than traditional construction, low environmental impact.
No exaggeration to say, this will be a significant revolution in the construction industry, let us wait and see.
