  • 3D printing can be applied to produce wood framed houses as an alternative to conventional stick frame construction. This is now possible because there are a variety of resources that could make this a reality. Our concept at Footprint Sustainable Housing includes using waste wood from deconstructe…
    My concept proposes to reuse wood powder that is a common “waste” produced in every carpentry shop into 3D printer filament by mixing wood powder with a thermo softening polymer and extruding out through a nozzle to create strands or spools of filament that can be used or sold easily. A…
    Wood wool cement board is a versatile building material made from wood wool (excelsior) and cement.  The main characteristics are: fire resistance; wet and dry rot resistance; freeze-thaw resistance; termite and vermin resistance; thermal insulation and acoustic absorbance. JUST A THOUGHT…&#…
    <p class=”MsoNormal”>By using Laminated Object Manufacturing (LOM) one could produce core geometries that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to produce with traditional wood manufacturing methods.  LOM is appealing because the wood fibre is still in a state where many of …
    I recently built an object using standard 1/8″ rotary cut hemlock veneer that was laser cut before being glued up into a cube.  When the cube was cracked open, a pumpkin was revealed.  When the pumpkin was removed from the cube, a void remained that was the perfect negative space of the pu…
    One major constraint in making 3D printed wooden furniture is the size of the parts which is too large to be printed by most of the 3D printers. So the solution is computer program with an algorithm which can take any 3D model and convert it into foldable pieces which can be assembled to get the fu…
    I suggest using CAD Software like Autodesk 123 to make layers of the furniture to be made and finally assembling it to make the furniture. It is also a kind of additive manufacturing. Here the layers can be 3d printed in sections and later glued or assembled to make the final furniture, the advant…
    My concept proposes to use saw dust and resin for making large sized 3d furniture. The saw dust and resin will be filled in furniture shaped polythene bags which inflates with this mixture and once it is dried the bag can be removed to obtain the solid furniture below. The saw dust and resin mixtur…
    Many of you might have heard about doodler the 3d printing pen, I think the same technology can be extended to wood as well. At present the 3d Printing pen in wood is not yet available even though 3d printing in wood is available. I see a variety of uses of it in wood works. Mainly it can be used f…
    Wood grows naturally to its final dimensions.  There has been no way to produce objects from trees without subtraction of material.  To use this material for additive manufacturing, it must be reduced to usable micro-layers which can be then laminated to re-grow it into shaped 3D objects.  This …
    My concept suggests to use drones for building a complex shape building using wooden bricks or parts. The drones will lay each part one over the other after applying a adhesive between it. The building will infact be build by a swarm of drones which will do the job in a synchronous manner, the plan…
