Contour Crafting Corporation and International Code Council – Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) have started a collaboration with respect to building code compliance for the newly emerged field of construction using 3D printing technology. Currently, there is a need in the construction industry for development of regulations and standard procedures for design, testing, implementation and inspection of 3D printed buildings. CC Corp/ICC ES collaboration aims to address this building code compliance issue and is expected to result in publication of an ICC-ES acceptance criteria and evaluation report for automated layer-based construction of buildings and structures.
