PPH, Maine Public report on 3D printing affordable housing at UMaine ASCC
The Portland Press Herald and Maine Public reported on the effort at the University of Maine’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center to 3D print small homes made with wood fiber. Home to the world’s largest polymer 3D printer, ASCC is developing robotic and artificial intelligence technology to automate construction, which they predict will be faster and less costly than traditional stick-built construction. “We’re looking for a radical solution, a different solution, which isn’t going to happen overnight. We’re not looking for a quick fix, because there is none,” said Habib Dagher, founding executive director of ASCC. The Sun Journal and CentralMaine.com shared the PPH report. The Bangor Daily News shared the Maine Public report.
