FIRST IN EUROPE

We 3D printed the first building in Europe, to demonstrate how far the technology had come. The building was constructed in Copenhagen and acts as an office space for the harbor industry surrounding it.

MATERIAL

In collaboration with FORCE Technology, we have developed a strong and sustainable recipe for the concrete mix, utilizing recycled materials.

FREE FORMS

One of the big advantages 3D construction printing brings to the table is the free forms in the architecture – the printer doesn’t care if the walls are straight or bend.

COST

Due to the speed, material, and low labor requirements, the cost of a 3D printed building is relatively low compared to standard constructed buildings.

THE BOD – EUROPE’S FIRST 3D PRINTED BUILDING

INTRODUCING BOD2

BOD2 is an upgraded and improved version of the printer which
was used to 3D print the first building in Europe, The BOD.

Based on the experience obtained with the BOD printer, the BOD2 incorporates improved functionality and stability compared to the first version. It is build on the same proven principles as the BOD printer. This assures the customer of a tested and proven system.

  • 2. generation
    BOD2 is the only second generation construction printer on the market.

  • Modular construction printer
    BOD2 is developed to fit any project. Decide the size of BOD2 by its modules – add modules to fit the projects specifications.

  • Print speed
    BOD2 is 3x faster than the first generation, with a 18 meter/minute print speed.

  • Gantry system
    The gantry system is optimal for in situ projects as well as fabrication of elements off site.

  • Interchangeable nozzle system
    New optimised nozzles are developed to insure smooth surfaces. Standard layer height is 2 cm, and 5 cm in width.

  • Flexibility
    Beside the modular system, the BOD2 is flexible in terms of mounting. It can be mounted to the foundation or to movable concrete pillars.

PERI Group acquires minority share in construction 3D printing company COBOD

German PERI Group, a leading manufacturer of formwork and scaffolding systems, has reportedly acquired a significant minority stake in newly established construction 3D printing company COBOD International. The construction AM firm was established by Danish company 3D Printhuset in September of this year in an effort to refocus its construction AM business.

With its minority stake in COBOD, PERI will offer the company’s BOD construction 3D printing technology to its own clients around the globe. The investment could therefore trigger significant growth for COBOD’s own business.

3D Printhuset establishes COBOD International to manufacture and sell BOD2 modular construction printer

3D Printhuset has established a new company to manufacture and sell the BOD2 construction 3D printer.

COBOD International will now be responsible for bringing the revamped gantry printing system to market. Wanting to build on the success of that first machine, 3D Printhuset this year set about upgrading the system, making it modular and ten times faster than the original, with an apparent build speed of 1 meter per second.
