Every narrative has a beginning, BambooVision's Vision began
with individuals who cared about the environment and feel that investing in bamboo is the next, most cost-effective approach in mitigating environmental damage. Developing and using the full potential of bamboo as a raw material for the benefit of humanity while remaining in harmony with mother nature.
This is an article on our future predictions of Bamboo 3D Printing.
Solving the High Costs of Shipping and Production of Bamboo Goods
The three big problems that bamboo businesses face:
1. Complex Bamboo Production Process
Bamboo does not have the ideal, whole body, for manufacturing - a producer must divide the circular body into many bamboo slats, flatten the slats, and then join it together as a solid panel before it can be used to manufacture solid commodities - like its wood counterparts.
2. Excess Bamboo Water Retention
Bamboo is not wood but instead lives in the family of grass. Therefore it contains more water than wood. Before gluing bamboo slats together forming the bamboo panels, a manufacturer must dry bamboo to a moisture content level of less than 7% in a dry room or tanks in order for the glue to function as needed.
Bamboo has a density of around 40 pounds per cubic foot, which is comparable to oak. Because the bamboo panels are made entirely of bamboo - they will be slightly heavier than a similar-thickness oak plywood panel; even though most oak plywood contains a lower density species for the interior plies.

As a result: bamboo products require not only more production processes than wood, but also come at higher shipping expenses due to their density and weight. BambooVision saw only one possible answer to solve these problems: BAMBOO 3D PRINTING
Because of the entire circular economy, which is built on bamboo as the most sustainable bio-filler for a 3D printer to employ, bamboo 3D printing is the solution mankind needs. The method would slash production and transportation expenses immensely.
Bamboo 3D printing would not only serve to solve the complex manufacturing processes, transportation logistics of bamboo culms, and warehousing issues but would also provide an endless variety of possibilities to use bamboo as a raw material.
The Game Changer: Viral Tweet
In the year 2029, the world was in a state of natural resource depletion. With the scarcity of raw materials for industrial manufacturing and the destruction of the majority of the world's forest ecosystems, BambooVision was forced to enter the 3D printing market with its revolutionary Bamboo 3D printing technology.
At first, no one was willing to invest in its concept, so it struggled to fund it, but that all changed after one tweet from a world-famous musician with over 40 million followers.
The tweet was the boost it needed for bamboo to be recognized as the best instrument for healing the Earth.
Bamboo 3D printer - the "BB 3D Almighty"
Following the viral tweet, many investors and venture capital firms jumped on board and invested in the BambooVision 3D Printer initiative. BambooVision went all-in with its development of the initiative with its newfound resources - accelerating and taking 3D printing to unimaginable heights.
BambooVision introduced the first public usage for mass production into the market with the following model: BB 3D Almighty
The "BB 3D Almighty" is a supermarket-based stationary 3D printing machine that is unique, creating any shape within a 50 cm cube space. This allowed customers to order one of 30.000 pre-programmed products using an app on their phone where they will be notified after the printed production of their bamboo products, ready for pickup or delivery to their homes.
Even as BambooVision grows in popularity in the worldwide market, it never forgets the community that has supported them succeed. BB 3D Print provides free design and customized product services to any user, with the caveat that the design must be available to other users.
BB 3D Almighty the 4th Generation -
The ultimative 3D printer
BambooVision went public in the US and Germany after launching their "BB 3D Almighty the 4th," which was immediately available in every supermarket, convenience store, and homegoods store in the US and Europe. Within two weeks of going public, their stock and worth increased tenfold.
"BB 3D Almighty the 4th" is a W3m x L5m x H2,4m printing machine that could print anything within a W2,5m x L4,5m x H2m space. It was dubbed the "Cube" by the bamboo community. Customers found the "Cube" to be the most convenient way to obtain any item they needed. The "Cube's" technology was so advanced that BambooVision was able to instruct it to create five different consistencies in order to build structures.
The "Cube" was able to print everything and anything using bamboo with its revolutionary technology, including dream chairs, umbrellas, dishes, toys, and even toilet brushes. Customers no longer need to travel around to different establishments in search of the products they needed. Instead, they could use the BB print app to have the "Cube" print anything they could ever desire.
The "Cube's" success was due not only to its technology but also to the fact that BambooVision created a large, conscious community around bamboo. BambooVision incentivizes users to produce designs for the community where they would receive a 5% commission on their goods sold. Which has resulted in the development of over 150.000 products to choose from within the "Cube" pool.
Bamboo as a raw material for
BambooVision spent five years looking for the proper components for its printer to come to life. For its 3D printer, the aim was to employ as much biomaterial as possible. Shredded bamboo powder, water, and various glues served as the basis for the printer. The bamboo 3D printer produced products of varying consistencies utilizing several kinds of glue to bind.
An AI then analyzes the objects that need to be printed and selects the most suitable glue for the job. BambooVision even took part in the "Formula One" circuit. Several "Formula One" teams utilize the "Cube" to manufacture their wheels and tools on the spot for their high-performance cars. They bypassed the need to ship all of their replacement wheels and tools around the world, in turn saving them from high financial costs.
What makes this material composition exceptional is that 90% of its constituents are organic that use bamboo as a bio-filler. This resulted in the greatest choice humans could make in turn reducing the harmful impacts on the ecosystem and the environment.

The bamboo 3d print supply chains
BambooVision's revolutionary supply chains shorten the production time and the delivery times tenfold. In comparison to many other industries, the investment for a full-fledged bamboo 3D printing supply chain is very low. BambooVision's major investment was in the development of its 3D printing system. Once that was in place, any future investments were so low that the cost of raw materials were less than 5% of their entire expenditure.
The quality of the bamboo was not an important element in their process; it was only used as a bio-filler. This basically means that BambooVision would only need to set up a small facility near a bamboo plantation or forest and would use every single piece of bamboo as raw material, including the leaves and roots. It would only require it in powder form, which simplifies transportation and reduces the required space and weight.
The only part of its process, that is not completely environmentally friendly, is the glue it uses which only accounts for 3% of the total material used for printing.
The profit margin achieved with this product was incredible; each item was sold by a fixed space size that the printer used - resulting in a 5000% profit for each item sold. With such a large profit, BambooVision was able to fund its research and plantation projects. BambooVision even developed legislation and policy around bamboo to ensure that they were always planting more bamboo than cutting it down.
