SUSTAINABLE, CREATIVE & INNOVATIVE
The project aims to develop sustainable future materials and fabrication processes – an innovative wood-based material for 3D-printing.
The life cycle of the wood being used and reused in 3d-printing.
The trees are harvested for manufacturing of traditional wood products.
At the sawmill large quantities of waste material is produced when making different kinds traditional wooden products.
This waste material can be used for 3D-print in wood.
And when printed and used the wooden material in the products can be recycled and reprinted.
Reprinting the wood for new purposes.
The project addresses the challenge to modernize wood-based manufacturing and adapt it for large scale additive manufacturing. Wouldwood is an integrated design, material and production platform for advanced additive production of biobased medium and large sizes components for construction and transportation. It includes digital design and production tools, communication systems, a biobased material system and a recycling strategy.
Wouldwood II has a budget of 14,9 MSek and is financed through VINNOVAS UDI program (Challenge Driven Innovation, stage 2) together with the partners
