WinSun .... creating history with 3D printing homes.

Chinese 3D printing firm wins big Egypt housing order

BEIJING, February 11, 2015

WinSun Decoration Design Engineering, a China-based company behind the 3D printing house technology, has clinched a major 20,000-unit order from Egypt government, said a top official.

These houses are made using an exclusive printing ‘ink’ made of recycled construction waste, glass fibre, steel, cement and special additives, remarked Ma Yi He, the chief executive of WinSun, as he showcased the single-storey printed house pre-ordered by the Egyptian government.

Egypt’s military rulers have promised to build a million affordable homes by 2020, he added.

Winsun had last year created history by constructing a set of 10 single-storey 3D-printed homes in a single day.

Now it is back with another landmark feat - the world’s tallest 3D printed building - a five-storey apartment block - and a 1,100-sq-m mansion with internal and external decoration to boot, stated Ma.

Unveiling the project at Suzhou Industrial Park in Jiangsu province, Ma said the pieces for the building were printed in WinSun’s factory and assembled at the industrial park near Shanghai.

The print machine is 6.6 m tall, 10 m wide, and 150 m long. “This is the world’s first continuous printing 3D printer, and the largest 3D house printer in the world,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
