Black Buffalo 3D—a leading provider of structural 3D construction printers and materials—and Saudi Readymix Concrete Co.—the leading producer of ready-mix and related products in Saudi Arabia—have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to manufacture Black Buffalo 3D’s proprietary structural ink utilizing local materials and to partner in the creation of regional 3d construction printing materials, mixes, and additional 3D construction ink formulas.

Black Buffalo 3D’s commitment to scaling the adoption of 3D construction printing begins with finding the right partner to manufacture reliable, sustainable, and easy-to-use ink that can be produced with locally available materials. Saudi Readymix will provide access to its R&D facilities and vast network to assist in the development and testing of a regionalized 3D ink that can be used in any 3D construction printer in the region to print housing, commercial buildings, and infrastructure components on demand.

“While evaluating partners to produce and customize 3D construction ink for the Middle East, it became clear that Saudi Readymix was committed to innovation and had the capabilities to help us modify our ICC-ES AC509 approved ink for the region and manufacture a formula that could be used to print both structural and non-bearing walls,” remarked Mike Miceli, CEO of Black Buffalo 3D.

Black Buffalo 3D, the world’s first 3D construction printing manufacturer to meet ICC-ES AC509 standards for printing walls will further partner with local developers and test to local building code standards to scale adoption and acceptance in Saudi Arabia. Presidio Advisors (Dubai), Black Buffalo 3D’s regional distribution partner will provide additional local support and information to qualified builders.
