The house is said to consist of a built area of 1000 sq ft (90 m2), had a total printing time of 46 hours and was 3D printed using the BOD2 3D construction printer from Denmark-based Cobod International.

Cobod says that the total length of the print was over 9km and were extruded layer by layer on top of each other in a total of 145 layers each of 2cm height.

Simon Klint Bergh, head of Asia-Pacific for Cobod, said, “When we created Cobod, we never envisaged, that we would have a market in a place like Borneo. The fact that our technology is now applied there shows, that the market for our technology is endless. When we can sell our printers in Borneo, we can sell them anywhere”.

The new 3D printed house in Borneo is located on the premises of the Malaysian Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB), which is the permitting body in Malaysia, at their training arm premises Malaysian Construction Academy (ABM) in Kuching, Sarawak (Malaysia) and was built in collaboration with the agency.
