Sustainable Off-Grid Tiny House Built With A 3D Printer

It is the dream of some of us to ever quietly live in a cabin off grid. Without too much hassle and the hustle and bustle of the city. New techniques can probably help these people live completely off-the-grid in the near future. Think of figures printed with a 3D printer, but bigger. Much bigger!

Print a tinyhouse with a 3D printer

The American architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, and a team from the University of Tennessee have entered into a partnership to create one of the largest objects made with a 3D printer: a tinyhouse.
The object that is created is called "Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy structure" (abbreviated AIMIE 1.0), is an object that has been made entirely with a 3D printer. With this project, the designers give a small insight into the off-the-grid mobile life that might be possible in the future.

The 3D-printed house does not look very livable yet, but the possibilities have certainly been considered. The object is in fact a sustainable house and car in one (we often call it a camper nowadays ..), which can generate both electricity and act as a source of energy.
On the inside of the hypermodern camper you will find a refrigerator, lights and a crane that all work on solar energy. If the devices are not switched on, the electricity of the solar panels is stored in the battery of the house. The car is equiped with batteries and generator that can provide the house with energy when the sun is not shining.

The future of sustainable living

Sustainability is a red thread in the project. With a 3D printer you can design something and print it exactly, so there is no waste left over. It will take a while before AIMIE 1.0 is for sale, if it appears on the market at all. It appears in any case that the possibilities for printing objects with a 3D printer are far from exhausted.
