INNOprint 3D Prints Shelters in Just 30 Minutes

A team of French researchers at the University of Nantes has developed a 3D printer capable of creating emergency shelters within an extremely short period of time.

The robotic arm of INNOprint 3D is able to print insulated and sealed temporary housing with a base of up to 3 x 3 meters and 3 meters in hight in only 30 minutes. According to Benoit Furet, Professor at the Institute for Communication and Cybernetics, the machine including raw material is meant to be shipped to disaster regions in order to create emergency housing within 20 to 30 minutes each, depending on size.

Currently the team is working on expanding the machine’s build area to create temporary shelters with a hight of up to seven meters and unlimited length.
