Gonic, NH – Did you ever see one of those cool 3d-printed houses in the news and wonder where you could buy one? No problem. You can order one soon from Madco3d in Gonic, New Hampshire. The houses are just one of a the game-changing 3d-printed products by these entrepreneurs.
Helmed by an architect with an in-house construction company, this high-tech robotics-as-a-service outfit intends to change the way housing is made, save the oceans and coastlines and create beautiful art while they do it.
The company has come out of stealth mode and is poised for their first round of invest-ment with a long inquiry list for 3d-printed coral reefs, multi-story and single home build-ings, modern art and more. Some of the biggest corporations in the country have been knocking on their door.
Their first 3d-printed home print is due this fall. Madco3d’s machine prints layer by layer in a giant bed of sand (about 10’ x 20’). One hour of printing yields one foot of wall (or art, or coral). The shape? Whatever can be designed in a computer 3d program and fits the resolution of the machine.
In this case, architect Adam Kushner, inspired by the branching shapes of the oversized “Borboletta” sculptures the company printed this summer for the famed Venice Biennale (photos below, design by Monad Studios), has designed a tiny home that shows that their sustainable concrete can be “light and airy,” utilizing sand and non-toxic chemicals with almost no waste to create a “post-modern Thoreau house.”
The firm currently works with leading marine biologists in the USA and Mexico to design and print coral reef replacements that help repopulate and beautify reefs, as well as of-fer underwater sculpture galleries.
Their launch event is taking place November 11-13 at their production space in the Go-nic Mill, Gonic, NH between 4 and 7 p.m., with presentations by Professor Eric Goldem-berg of Monad Studio, designer of the Borboletta displayed at the Venice Biennale 2021
and 3d printed in concrete in large scale by Madco3d. Architect Adam Kushner, presi-dent of Madco3d will speak about 3d printing in construction, and Madco3d partner Dan Bernard will host.
Beverages and appetizers will be served. It’s by invitation only. If you or your company/ group are interested in attending, contact email@example.com. Electronic press kit available on request.
