Two years ago, we sat around a table and kicked around some really big ideas. We knew traditional homebuilding would never meet the need for shelter, with more and more people living unhoused every year.
With some careful goal setting and tenacious vision, that conversation led to a partnership with a construction technology company called ICON. Together, we developed the first 3D printer designed to print homes where they’re needed most. The first version of the printer, Vulcan 1, was unveiled at South by Southwest in Austin, TX, in March 2018. In 2019, a modified and improved version, Vulcan 2, will print the world’s first 3D printed community.
