The Future is Now Or At Least Nearer with @ORNL 3D Printed House & Car

Researchers printed the 210-sq-ft home on ORNL’s large-scale 3D printer called the Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) machine to create what is now the world’s largest 3D printed polymer structure. The entire process – from concept to assembly to the unveiling in September 2015 – took nine months. A team that included engineers and staff from Clayton Homes assembled the printed pieces of the house in three weeks. The home differs from previous 3D structures in its improved functionality, durability and energy efficiency. After trying various kinds of materials, the research team selected ABS plastic and added carbon fiber to add strength to the printed sections. Vacuum insulated panels that were installed between the inner and outer walls of the structure are seven times more energy efficient than traditional wall insulation. Recessed windows and a streamlined, reflect...
