Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona is building its first 3D-printed home, and an NPCA Associate member is part of it.
The 1,738-square-foot, three bedroom, two bath, single-story home currently under construction in Tempe combines 3-D printing and traditional construction to create an opportunity for scalable, cost-effective homeownership. This project marks the first time Habitat for Humanity has used 3-D printing within a house build. Completion is scheduled for August.
PERI, an NPCA Associate member based in Weissenhorn, Germany, pre-fabricated columns for the entrance area using the same BOD2 printer technology that a German company used to construct parts of the first 3-D printed home in that country.
