We revolutionize 3D-printing with a software-based, participatory approach to architecture and planning.


Beta Realities' combination of user-friendly design software and a kit of parts approach to 3D printing presents a powerful technology platform - transforming the planning, production, and construction chain with a more participatory approach to affordable architecture and neighborhoods that focus on the needs of their users.
Our integrated end-to-end process commences with the initial building design: By designing functional objects instead of preconfigured homes, intelligent building parts precede the actual building.

A software approach to 3D-printing architecture.

In three steps we create affordable buildings and neighborhoods that focus on the needs of their users.

Through custom software, future homeowners easily select suitable and affordable building parts. The software assists in the selection of appropriate building parts, compiling them into customizable homes.

By designing functional objects instead of preconfigured homes, we save materials and harness the power of AI-assisted planning to create efficient and adequate layouts.

Our integrated software and Kit-of-Part approach ensure meticulous control over every aspect of the building’s lifecycle. The software feeds fabrication information directly to 3D printers on-site.

Scalable and affordable homes on-demand.

From shape and size to design and appearance, all elements are customizable and deployable based on the customer’s preferences and budget. Embedded adaptive furniture for both interior and exterior spaces maximizes the advantages of individual 3D printing.
