(3DPrint.com) ICON has completed a $9 million seed funding round to develop its progressive model for homebuilding that includes new 3D printers, robotics systems, and advanced construction materials. Oakhouse Partners led, while other national homebuilders also contributed.
Their goal is to begin fabricating homes that can be 3D printed in 24 hours, with their proof-of-concept, 350-square-foot home constructed in less than 48 hours and costing less than $10,000. These homes are expected to be high-performance, using ‘zero energy,’ and presented in a flexible design platform leaving an infinite number of design opportunities open to prospective homebuyers. The homes are thermally efficient, comfortable, and most importantly—affordable.
