The 3D-printed building and construction market continues to make waves around the globe, with recent projects making news in places like Denmark, Japan, and the Caribbean. This time, news of 3D published concrete buildings comes from Australia, where 3D printing business Luyten has announced plans to work with the College of New South Wales (UNSW) to establish 3D printed houses in Melbourne, Australia. A noteworthy aspect of this upcoming project is that this new additively manufactured house will be the first owner-occupied 3D-printed home in the Southern Hemisphere.

The partnership incorporates building and construction and 3D printing tools from Luyten's Platypus 3D building printer array, which uses artificial intelligence to produce massive building 3D prints out of specialized concrete. Meanwhile, UNSW's Arch_Manu (Next Generation Architectural Manufacturing) research group provides design expertise to the building while compiling project data to help set new standards for 3D-printed construction projects in Australia.

Professor M. Hank Haeusler, Director of Arch_Manu at the University of New South Wales, welcomed the collaboration, saying: "This will be a lighthouse project for 3D printing in Australia, covering state-of-the-art research in design and technology and putting research results into practice. It will transform housing in Australia."
Luyten CEO and co-founder Ahmed Mahil also commented on the project: "Our collaboration with UNSW will involve working together to document and deliver tangible proof of concept of the benefits of 3D printing, such as superior design and Project Management. This project will give the world a leading example of why 3D printing technology delivers the next frontier in sustainable and affordable housing."


In fact, as with other 3D-printed construction projects, there are significant savings in construction costs, construction time, resource usage, and greenhouse gas emissions compared to standard construction methods. One notable area of savings is eliminating the need to use concrete formwork.

The 3D-printed home is set up to be integrated in Melbourne in very early 2024. It was created to demonstrate the innovative technology and advantages brought by this brand-new approach to building production. "The design not only demonstrates the versatility and flexibility of 3D printing capabilities; it also embodies the amazing architectural advantages of computational design and building fabrication technologies, and the ability to create extraordinary spaces at a fraction of the cost," explained Mr Mahil.

Inconel 718 powder in 3D printing

Inconel 718 powder has great high-temperature resistance, deterioration resistance, and mechanical buildings, so it is appropriate for producing parts in high-temperature and corrosive atmospheres. 3D printing technology can quickly and accurately create parts with complex shapes of geometric, while Inconel 718 powder provides sufficient strength and durability to ensure the longevity of the parts. In addition, through 3D printing technology, parts with complex structures, such as internal cooling channels, can be manufactured, thereby further improving the parts' cooling effect and mechanical performance.
