In 2018, Tom Macrokanis (left), like many others, believed that owning a home would be a distant dream due to the high cost of housing. However, his interest in new and emerging technology led him to discover concrete 3D printing. Seeing an opportunity to bring his own dream of homeownership closer, as well as that of others, he began developing Macro3D’s concrete 3D printing technology and building relationships with industry leaders.
Similarly, Steve Sammartino (right), a leading futurist and entrepreneur, had been exploring the potential of concrete 3D printing in Australia and identified the issue of accessibility to housing which 3D printing could help to relieve.
In 2022, they joined forces under Macro3D and assembled a team of experts to increase accessibility to housing for everyone.
