The foundations of this 3D printed home are built on resilience and sustainable living. Walls will be constructed with a proprietary blend of cementitious material called ContourCrete. The inherent strength of this material means that this home is predicted to have double the usual life expectancy of a standard home. While from a design perspective, National Design Manager at Simonds Dave Clynk notes “The opportunity to build curved walls relating to a more organic feel, naturally support the business intent to drive towards a net-zero home of the future.”
Build time is one of the biggest factors that customers take into consideration when starting their new home journey. After years of development and research, printing of Australia’s first 3D printed home will be carried out by Contour3D’s latest Opus One printer, halving the time it takes to produce the home.
