Australian 3D printing technology company, Luyten 3D has announced a groundbreaking partnership with Alquist 3D which will see it supplying its proprietary 3D concrete mix to Alquist 3D for the building of houses and dwellings in the United States and Canada.
The partnership brings together two 3D printing businesses to accelerate the build of 3D homes and dwellings in North America.
Luyten 3D designs and manufactures 3D printers and has also developed a concrete mix ‘Ultimatecrete’ capable of delivering fast-drying high strength eco-friendly concrete.
Alquist 3D is a US-based firm that brings new vitality to economically distressed and under-served communities by creating affordable, sustainable, innovative homes.
Luyten 3D cofounder and global CEO Ahmed Mahil said he was elated to be partnering with Alquist 3D to support and promote the build of 3D homes.
Mahil said: “Our work together will involve providing Alquist 3D with the ability to use and distribute Ultimatecrete under license across the United States and Canada.
“Alquist will use Ultimatecrete to print the first owner-occupier house in the United States as well as many other houses and dwellings in their pipeline of works.”
Luyten 3D was the first company in Australia to introduce 3D printing robotics for the building and construction sector and built the first 3D building code-compliant house in the southern hemisphere, according to a statement.
CEO of Alquist 3D Zachary Mannheimer said: “America has a housing shortage and Alquist 3D plans to solve it but in order to do this we need the best 3D printing solutions that the world can offer.
“We have the leading knowledge, capability and technology, we just need the highest performing concrete mix for 3D building and construction and we found it in Luyten 3D’s Ultimatecrete.”
