Danish-based COBOD International signs a distribution agreement with nidus3D (based in Canada) in a partnership to bring 3D construction printing technology to Canada and strengthen building automation in North America.
3D printing technology has transformed processes in medical, aerospace, and tool-making fields. Now, that same disruption is being brought to the construction sector, and nidus3D is at the forefront, paving the way for new builds to be achieved faster, more affordably, and with less waste, using COBOD technology.
As a testament to their ambitions, nidus3D has recently succeeded 3D printing Canada’s first multi-unit structure in real concrete using COBOD’s BOD2, the world’s best-selling 3D construction printer. The project is a first-of-its-kind consisting of four units each measuring 560 ft2 and is the first 3D printed home to obtain permission for occupancy in Canada. The 3D printed homes are expected to be available by Summer 2022 for families seeking attainable housing
“The opportunity to work with COBOD, world leader in 3DCP is incredible,” said Ian Arthur, President of nidus3D. “The BOD2 printer is an industry-leading construction printer that outstrips competitors in its versatility, scope, and durability. nidus3D is actively deploying 3D construction printing technology to lower building costs and expand access to resilient, efficient, and sustainable housing while complying with Canadian building standards.”
Commenting on signing nidus3D as a distributor, Philip Lund-Nielsen, Co-Founder & Head of Americas at COBOD International said, “We are proud to be partnering with nidus3D to bring our state-of-the-art 3D construction printing technology to Canada, further solidifying our position as the #1 supplier in North America. With their recent project, nidus3D successfully demonstrates how our technology can be applied to build faster, better, and cheaper as our partners learn to master the 3D printing technology.”
nidus3D reports to have multiple residential and non-residential buildings lined up for 2022 and 2023, these are subject to announcement at a later stage.
