The couple move into Europe’s first fully 3D-printed home

Published

on

Dutch couple Elize Lutz and Harrie Dekker became the first in Europe to move into a fully 3D-printed home.

Inspired by the shape of a boulder that would be difficult and expensive to build with traditional methods, this home is the first of five homes planned by the Saint-Gobain construction firm Weber Beamix. This house has 94 square meters of living space. It became the first legally habitable and commercially rented property in which load-bearing walls were made using a 3D printer.

“This is also the first home to be 100% locally approved and is home to people who actually pay to live in the home,” said Bas Huysmans, CEO of Weber Benelux, the construction arm of his French parent company. …

The 3D printing method uses a huge robotic arm with a nozzle that feeds specially formulated cement layer by layer to create the wall and increase its strength. Many in the construction industry are looking at 3D printing as a way to cut costs and reduce environmental damage by reducing the amount of cement used.

The new home consists of 24 concrete elements that were printed layer by layer at the Eindhoven plant in just 120 hours, then transported by truck to the construction site and placed on the foundation. Then they installed the roof and window frames and put in the finishing touches.

By the time the fifth of the three-story, three-bedroom houses is built, it is expected that construction will be done entirely on site and that other items will also be produced using a printer, further driving down costs.
