voxeljet AG 3D-printed the highly complex formwork for the DFAB House (digitally fabricated house) research project in the NEST (Next Evolution in Sustainable Building Technologies) of the EMPA (Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research). This is a 78 m2 lightweight concrete slab as a statically optimised and functionally integrated floor slab with an unusually complex shape. 3D printing with the "powder-binding-jetting" process has once again proven its worth here.

We are proud to announce that 14 Trees, a joint venture between LafargeHolcim and CDC group, is using our BOD2 printer to print low-carbon housing and schools in Malawi.

PERI, our German partner, is using our BOD2 3D construction printer for the project.
A total of 380 m2 of building will be made making a total of 5 apartments, which will be rented out once the project is complete.
This is neither a research nor demo project – The building is being made for profit.

“Small slight thoughts take shape by depositing. This sentence from the Dhammapada says that reality is the result of our thoughts and expectations. This 2,500-year-old text is the best summary of 3D printing. Each 3D printed piece is a series of information materialized , it is a”deposited thought. In WASP thoughts take shape since they are digitized. When information is transferred into the most humble raw materai "earth" , the resulting object changes its value, earth becomes home. Within 50 years we will need houses for other 3 billion human beings; WASP is depositing thoughts to shape those houses in respect of nature". Massimo Moretti, CEO WASP
