Sydney, July 10: Luyten 3D, a leading Australian 3D printing technology company, has secured a grant from the federal government’s Cooperative Research Centres Projects Grants program.
The grant will support their efforts to provide affordable and durable housing solutions in remote areas of outback Australia.
The project, in collaboration with the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and Hanson Construction Materials, aims to utilize innovative 3D printing techniques to address the housing needs of mining and other communities.
With a total cost of nearly $6.5 million, the project will span several years and receive $2,993,626 in grant funding from the CRC-P program.
Luyten 3D’s co-founder and global CEO, Ahmed Mahil, expressed excitement about the grant, highlighting the importance of developing manufacturing technologies that remove logistics as a bottleneck and enable on-site construction using locally sourced materials.
The partnership between Luyten 3D, UNSW, and Hanson will focus on developing a 3D printing system, combining hardware and software, to construct houses faster and more cost-effectively with locally available materials.
Luyten 3D’s advanced 3D printing technology for the building and construction industry has already gained recognition globally, being utilized in various regions worldwide.
Mahil emphasized the benefits of their technology, including the ability to transport 3D printers to remote locations and utilize local materials such as terracrete, a more sustainable alternative to concrete. Luyten 3D’s Luyten Platypus X12 printer, which can be transported compactly and unfolded on-site, enables the printing of virtually any house in one go.
The CRC-P grant will provide the necessary funding to deliver affordable, durable, and visually compatible houses for communities in remote areas.
Associate Professor Haeusler of UNSW emphasized the project’s alignment with the objectives of the ARC Industry Transformation Training Centre for Next-Gen Architectural Manufacturing, which aims to address Australia’s housing crisis through sustainable and digital approaches.
Luyten 3D’s cutting-edge technology significantly reduces construction waste, production time, and labor costs when compared to traditional construction methods.
It guarantees cost savings, shorter execution times, and reduced carbon dioxide emissions.
The company’s commitment to reducing the construction industry’s carbon footprint is reflected in its technology, which employs proprietary mixes to minimize cement usage and robotic systems that lower carbon dioxide footprints on construction sites and in logistics by 50 to 70 percent.
The grant from the CRC-P program will enable Luyten 3D to continue revolutionizing the construction industry, providing innovative solutions to address the housing needs of remote communities in Australia.
