As we know that 3d printing is on the rise but can we scale it to even bigger. This company is using 3d technology to print full houses. In 2018, ICON was the first company in America to secure a building permit for and build a 3D printed home. The house in Austin, TX was a proof of concept that brought their team, investors, and customers together to drive towards the future.
ICON used the support to develop robotics, software, and materials as their core technology for their partners and home buyers. The strength of these products has been proven further through a number of projects since that first house, with more to come soon.
The Vulcan II is ICON's first commercially available construction printer. Designed specifically to produce resilient single-story buildings faster, more affordably, and with more design freedom. It has expanded the footprint of our printing capability to approximately 2,000 square feet. It has an adjustable width (to accommodate different slab sizes) and is transported in our custom trailer with no assembly required.
The Vulcan II features intuitive tablet-based controls, remote monitoring and support, onboard LED lighting for printing at night or during low-light conditions, and a custom software suite ensuring set-up, operations, and maintenance are as simple and straightforward as possible.
