Black Buffalo 3D’s NEXCON 3D Construction Printer featured at U.S. Department of HUD Innovative Housing Showcase in Washington D.C.

East Stroudsburg, PA, Kearny Point, NJ and New York, NY. Black Buffalo 3D (BB3D) will exhibit 3D-printed housing walls and its modular NEXCON 3D construction printer at the US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Innovative Housing Showcase on Washington DC’s National Mall—June 10-12, 2022—demonstrating how two new government proposals aimed at utilizing 3D printing for localized manufacturing can help increase the supply of affordable housing in the US, estimated at a shortage of 7 million homes nationally.  

 The President’s 2023 Budget includes investments to increase affordable housing supply that would lead to the production or rehabilitation of 500,000 new construction technology homes, such as printed communities which reduce build times and localize supply chains.  Black Buffalo 3D recognizes the potential for these new initiatives to help businesses adopt 3D construction printing (additive manufacturing) and is  offering consultations to contractors, builders, precast companies, and developers on how BB3D’s NEXCON printer can improve upon traditional building methods.  

Exhibitors were selected as an invite only showcase of new technology at the forefront of Housing Innovation. Black Buffalo 3D will have printed walls and display its modular NEXCON 3D construction printer on Washington’s National Mall along with a team of experts speaking about the benefits of 3D construction.  As part of HUD’s  Innovative Housing Showcase, businesses are welcome to attend and learn more about additive manufacturing opportunities in construction for off-site, near-site and onsite printing of housing.   

Black Buffalo 3D is a technology and materials provider, not a builder or developer. Its mission is to enable others to utilize additive manufacturing (3D printing) to complete projects more efficiently than traditional methods. The company does not to complete with its clients, but rather sells, rents, supports, and trains builders, developers, contractors, agencies, precast, modular home companies, and others on how NEXCON 3D construction printers and Planitop 3D ink can reduce build times, minimize waste, and increase flexibility of design at a lower cost than stick-based, block and other methods of construction.
