We build houses with a 3D Printer,which is 20 feet tall, 33 feet wide and 132 feet long in less than 24 hours. The parts, such as frame, wall are printed separately. Such a new type of 3D-printed structure is environment-friendly and cost-effective.
All materials used were created from recycled construction waste, industrial waste and tailings.
We produce a mix of cement and construction waste to construct the walls layer by layer, a process much like how a baker might ice a cake. We also plan to build 100 recycling facilities around China to help us keep with the demand.
Using a CAD design as a template, a computer controls a mechanical extruder arm to lay down concrete, which is treated with special hardeners so that each layer is strong enough to support the next one. The pieces are subsequently joined together on a construction site. These walls have a diagonally reinforced print pattern inside it that leaves plenty air gaps to act as insulation assembled on site.
1. To print a house, what is needed?
l A basic template or CAD Drawings; clients can choose a basic template, and customize it whatever they want. Similar to the 3D-printed
construction projects, prefabricated buildings have also proven themselves to be fast, cost-effective options
l 3D-printer; 20 feet tall, 33 feet wide and 132 feet long.
l Yingchuang special formula-ink; The ink including recycled construction materials(Construction waste), such as sand, concrete and glass fiber as well as Crazy Magic Stone;
2. What can YINGCHUANG sell?
l 3D printed walls;
l 3D printers;
l Secret part of the ink;
3. Tell me about the “ink”
4. What about the 3D printed walls?
l The walls are printed with special ink. (The special 3D printing ink is extracted and purified from fine natural stone), plus High quality cement and fiber, with much higher strength and tougher than that of high grade concrete and common wall materials.
l The 3D-printed walls won’t cracks, and are strong water proofing, better air permeability, better heat preservation and low carbon pollution.
l The wall is produced in a fully-digital way, no ways to cut corners, with errors as small as a millimeter.
l The quality is highly improved, about 50 percent lighter than common construction material.
5. Any other parts you have printed? Yes.
6. Why choose 3D house printing technology for construction?
