全球都面临着缺乏平价住房的严峻问题。 小户型和其他替代项目旨在提供中期补救措施。 用于家庭的 ICON Vulcan 3D 打印机也已开发用于帮助解决全球住房危机。 该打印机能够在几天内同时打印两到三个稳定的单层房屋，几乎没有任何材料浪费。 德克萨斯州和墨西哥已经为无家可归者建造了第一批房屋。 Vulcan 3D 打印机是这个年轻品牌的第一款实体产品，因此，它的工业设计对于未来的品牌语言具有开创性。 最初的设计准则是解决人与高科技机器之间的紧张关系，使住宅用 3D 打印机的外观传达出一种技术先进但同时又平易近人的形象。 与许多看起来咄咄逼人和令人生畏的建筑机械相比，Vulcan 标志性的轮廓、简单的几何形状以及硬边和柔和曲线相得益彰，散发出一种简约甚至友好的外观，引起人们的好奇，而不是恐惧。 此外，灯光效果有助于增强现场功能并突出品牌标志。 为了增加外部的简约并确保免受恶劣天气的影响，所有电缆和材料管都在设备内部布线。
The lack of affordable housing has become more and more of a problem around the globe. Tiny houses and other alternative projects are intended to provide remedies in the medium term. The ICON Vulcan 3D printer for homes has also been developed to help tackle the global housing crisis. The printer is capable of simultaneously printing two to three stable single-storey homes within a few days – and without almost any material waste. A first series of homes for homeless people has already been built in Texas and Mexico. The Vulcan 3D printer is the first physical product of the still young brand and that is why its industrial design was to be groundbreaking for the future brand language. The primary design maxim was to resolve the tension between man and high-tech machinery in such a way that the appearance of the 3D printer for homes conveys an image of being tech-forward yet at the same time approachable. In contrast to many construction machines that look aggressive and intimidating, Vulcan, with its iconic silhouette, simple geometry and interplay of hard edges and gentle curves, exudes a pared-down and even friendly appearance that arouses curiosity rather than apprehension. Moreover, lighting effects serve to enhance on-site functionality and highlight the brand logo. To add calm to the exterior and ensure protection from adverse weather, all cables and material tubes were routed inside the device.
