ASME highlights ASCC efforts to 3D print affordable housing

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) highlighted that the University of Maine Advanced Structures and Composites Center (ASCC) is using its 3D printer to make good, cheap, and fast economical housing from wood that would otherwise go to waste. According to Habib Dagher, founding executive director of the University of Maine’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center, the hope is the lifespan of the homes it creates will rival and even surpass the quality, durability, and reliability of conventional housing.
