Egypt: Chinese 3D Printing Company To Build Houses Across The Country
The world’s first continuous 3D printer will be used for the project
A giant s 6.6 m tall, 10 m wide and 150 m long 3D printing machine will be used to build houses in Egypt. This is the world’s first continuous printing 3D printer, and the largest 3D house printer in the world manufactured by WinSun Decoration Design Engineering, a China-based company behind the 3D printing house technology. The company sealed a deal with Egyptian government to construct 20,000- residential units. Reports Trade Arabia
These houses are made using an exclusive printing ‘ink’ made of recycled construction waste, glass fiber, steel, cement and special additives, remarked Ma Yi He, the chief executive of WinSun, as he showcased the single-story printed house pre-ordered by the Egyptian government.
Egypt’s military rulers have promised to build a million affordable homes by 2020, he added.
WinSun had last year created history by constructing a set of 10 single-story 3D-printed homes in a single day.
Now it is back with another landmark feat - the world’s tallest 3D printed building - a five-story apartment block - and a 1,100-sq-m mansion with internal and external decoration to boot, stated Ma.
Unveiling the project at Suzhou Industrial Park in Jiangsu province, Ma said the pieces for the building were printed in WinSun’s factory and assembled at the industrial park near Shanghai.
The print machine is 6.6 m tall, 10 m wide, and 150 m long. “This is the world’s first continuous printing 3D printer, and the largest 3D house printer in the world,” he added.
