Although it has already been presented at a conference held at NASA, Tridom’s project is still in the early stage of its development. The team behind Tridom, Anielle Guedes and Yaron Schwarcz, has been researching all the different approaches on the themes of 3D printed affordable and sustainable housing. They have formed a strategic partnership with Italy based WASP, united by the common goal of helping to solve the housing problems for the BOP population….
Tridom’s approach differs in both the type of machine they are developing and the materials used. The team is developing a frameless 3D printed which is in fact a robotic arm extruding building cement. The material itself will be made of recycled cement from demolished buildings. The objective is to use a robot and thus reduce the costs associated with construction as well as the waste….
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
