World’s Largest 3d Printed Building Completed in Florida, USA

Printed Farms, known for – among others – completing Florida’s first permitted 3D printed house in Tallahassee, announces the successful completion of an even more impressive undertaking: The printing of the world’s largest 3D printed building, a luxury horse barn, has been completed. Printed Farms used COBOD’s BOD2 construction 3D printer for the job.

COBOD has a unique standing position in the industry with significantly more and larger customers than any other provider and the printers from COBOD now hold all meaningful records for 3D printed buildings: COBOD printers have printed the tallest (Saudi Arabia 33 ft / 9.9 m), the fasted (3 buildings in 8 days in Oman) and now the largest 3D printed building in the world. The equestrian facility boasts a total floor area of 10,105 SF/ 939 m2 and a height of 13 feet / 4 meters. The total length of the building is an impressive 155 ft / 47 m, and the width is 83 ft / 25 m.

Situated in Wellington in Southern Florida, the world's largest 3D printed building has been constructed to withstand extreme local weather conditions including hurricanes and tropical storms. The versatility and benefits of 3D printing technology are also demonstrated through the structure’s 3D printed walls that create a cavity and air gap which provides natural cooling to the building. The build process involved five moves of the printer with the two sides completed twice and the middle section executed once.

Philip Lund-Nielsen, COBOD Co-founder and Head of Americas remarked from the company’s facilities in Miami, Florida, close to the project: “Printed Farms has done a remarkable job in completing this massive structure and the project demonstrates again how 3D printing is transforming the construction industry for the better. COBOD is proud to be technology supplier to yet another record-breaking 3D printing project on US soil which comes only shortly after the completion of the US' first 2-story 3D printed building in Texas, also using our BOD2 3D printer. We are especially proud to observe our 3D printers being utilized for a broad range of applications besides housing, which is the industry’s predominant use case. Our machines dominate this space already, but are in addition also used to print turbine bases, schools, office buildings, data centers, silos, and more – now that horse barns are added to the list”.
