At Container of Dreams we have a Dream. A dream to bring 3D house printing to Australia. We believe it can revolutionise the industry and make housing affordable for all. This is our mission.
In line with our policy to pioneer solutions to affordable housing and homelessness we are committed to making it so.
We have been in contact with the industry pioneers around the globe and will continue to pursue this as one of our ongoing projects. We are in discussions at the moment with two separate printer developers. We look forward to the direction these discussions take us. It's an exciting time!
Benefits of house 3D printing
Eco-friendly: 3D printed houses can be built with organic, eco-friendly materials. Moreover, some house 3D printers use solar energy and generate low CO2 emissions.
Affordable: house 3D printers can build affordable housing, to help alleviate homelessness or after natural disasters, such as bushfire recovery.
Scalable: construction 3D printing reduces certain building costs. For example, the cost for 1 square metre of wall using traditional construction methods is approximately $100, whereas a 3D house printer it is only $40 (approx).
Efficient: since the materials are 3D printed on demand, the machines produce less waste. Also, construction 3D printers can finish a home’s foundations in less than a few days, while traditional construction methods take several weeks or even months.
Design flexibility: with a 3D construction printer, it’s possible to easily create curved walls and unique facades.
Looking for Partners
3D House Printers are not cheap. We are looking for corporate partners to help make this dream a reality. If you believe you can help please get in touch today. Or donate to our Printed House Fund through our Supporters page
