Recall one of our previous posts, 3D Printed Building s Are Here!, 3D printing has been growing in the construction industry around the globe. The increased interest in 3D printed housing is due to: housing crisis, labor shortage, and interest in reducing waste produced during the building process. The founder and general manager of COBOD said, “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.”
Printed farms is a Florida-based construction start up that has recently purchased the first COBOD BOD 2 printer in America. This gantry style system has been seen in Europe and was used by Kamp C to build a 2 story demo house there. The same system is also being used to build another 2 story home in Germany and also a 5 unit apartment complex. Printed Farms has completed the 3D printing of the first 3D printed building in Florida, a 71 m2 (784 sqft) storage unit, using a giant BOD2 printer measuring 15x 12.5 x 10 meters (50′ x 42′ x 33′ ). The finished building was reinforced with rebar, completed with an ICF platform system, and signed off by a structural engineer. Printed Farms hopes to soon begin working on two 3D printed intercoastal villas in Florida.

Printed Farms, exclusive distributor of COBOD 3D printers in Florida, has completed Florida’s first 3D printed structure. Printed Farms is developing a scalable building system and is on a mission to commercialize 3D construction printing, in the video published on Jan 31, 2021, “Florida’s first 3D printed building by Printed Farms“, below:
In part 1 we watched the massive Cobod 3D printer make the concrete walls of this building, in this video it will get a smooth finish with a spray on stucco. It’s incredible how much better the building looks after getting a layer of stucco on the interior and exterior of the building. The average 2 car garage in the United States costs over $54,000 according to this link, in the video published on March 28, 2021, “Smooth Finish on 3D Printed Building in Florida (Part 2/2) [Printed Farms]“, below:

COBOD imprimió por segunda vez el edificio BOD. En dos años, la velocidad de impresión se incrementó 20 veces. Con el objetivo de documentar los avances de la tecnologia de impresión 3D en concreto, COBOD reimprimó las paredes del BOD (Building on Demand) impreso en 2017, in the video published on July 20, 2021, “Impresion en 3D del edificio BOD por segunda vez“, below:
