3D printed net zero house

A group of architecture students from Woodbury University, in partnership with Emergent, have built Los Angeles’ first fully 3D-printed net-zero energy house. Also, the walls of the 40-square-meter house were constructed in just 15 hours with the use of COBOD International’s BOD2 construction 3D printer.

Donald Ajamian, CEO of Emergent, commented on the 3D printed net zero house project: “The Solar Futures House demonstrates the potential of 3D construction printing and its advantages for the industry. By partnering with COBOD International and leveraging their automation technology, we are building homes and leading the way towards a more sustainable future”.

Philip Lund-Nielsen, Co-Founder and Head of Americas at COBOD International said: “The construction industry is grappling with a significant shortage of skilled labor, compounded by a lack of interest from young individuals for pursuing careers in conventional construction. We believe that arming and training the future workforce with automation technologies, such as 3D printers, can effectively address this issue.” and added, “We are very proud to see our 3D printers employed by yet another academic institution, in collaboration with Emergent, adding to the list of global educational counterparts, including Virginia Tech, Technical University of Denmark, Technical University of Braunschweig in Germany, the German University of Technology in Oman, and more”.
