3D Home Community
Together with our incredible partners New Story Charity, ICON Technology & Echale we're changing the way that homes are designed and built. Harnessing revolutionary 3D printing technology, we're part of the team that's building the World's first 3D printed community to those in desperate need of safe and secure homes.
We're so excited to be part of this incredible project that is revolutionizing the construction industry. All homes are printed by the Vulcan II. The Vulcan II is the first of its kind, 3D home printer, specifically designed to tackle the growing issue of homelessness for vulnerable populations around the world. This marvel of technology is currently printing 500 sq.ft. homes for a 50 home community in Tabasco, Mexico. Once fully proven through this project, the technology will be developed further with the goal of being able to print a 2,000 sqft. home in 24 hours. A further benefit of Icon's 3D technology is that it uses fewer materials and creates markedly less waste, making it a more economical and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional building methods. Revolutionary technology alone cannot accomplish everything, and these 3D homes could not be built if not for funding from our donors that pays for the ongoing cost of construction. Even at a comparatively low cost per home for construction, each community requires 50 to 100 homes and that adds up. In order to solve the housing crisis, there needs to be an ongoing and reliable source of social impact funding to build these homes. This is where we can thank our World Housing donor community who continues to support the funding requirements of homes.

"We continue to seek innovative solutions to combat global homelessness. This is the first step in proving the 3D technology, and our vision is to expand the incredible capabilities to other countries. We feel this is one of the ways we can broaden our impact, and maximize our capacity to help families in need of safe housing." -- Don McQuaid, Managing Director of World Housing, shown here during construction of the World Housing 3D Homes, with World Housing Ambassador Richard Bell.
