Facit Homes‘ D-Process is a construction technique that turns a 3D computer model into an entire house that can be easily assembled on-site. The building’s plywood components are produced using a CNC router, with the pieces assembled into lightweight blocks in the workshop.

On-site, only two people are needed to snap together the pieces like Lego bricks. Because the 3D model contains every element of the project, costs and waste are kept to a minimum.

The building is completely designed on a computer, including orientation, material quantities, and even the position of individual electical sockets. Facit Homes’ D-Process was shortlisted as one of the finalists in the 2013 Index: Awards.

A house in Denmark and one in the UK have been built using the on-site D-Process. You can check out the digital fabrication process in the video below:
