ETH Zurich team builds digitally fabricated DFAB House with 3D printing, robots

A team from ETH Zurich university in Switzerland is developing what could be the first house in the world to be designed, planned, and built using using mostly digital processes. The project, called DFAB House, will be realized through a combination of 3D printing, robots, and ingenuity.

The three-storey DFAB House, a part of the National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) Digital Fabrication Project, will reportedly be built at the Dübendorf NEST campus, a research and innovation campus operated by the EMPA institute for material science and technology and the EAWAG organization for aquatic research.

Toshiba Machine Announces a Metal 3D Printer Ten Times Faster Than Others on the Market | 3DPrint.com

It’s rare to see technology sectors advance as quickly as metal 3D printing has. Until very recently, the technology was lagging a bit behind other forms of 3D printing. Its cost, plus the size of the printers required, limited it mostly to large industrial companies, but just in the last few months there’s been a burst of innovations making metal printers smaller, cheaper and more accessible. From startups like Desktop Metal to major corporations like Additive Industries, this year’s major focus seems to be on advancing metal 3D printing.
