3D printing has been around for decades, but 3D houses? This is something new. 3D printed houses offer an innovative way to create affordable housing for people in developing nations. 3D printers are used to produce the building’s structural supports and then fill them with pre-fabricated materials – like aluminum or steel panels, insulation, wiring, and plumbing pipes – that are delivered on-site by truck.
1) 3D Printed House Australia: A Revolutionary Advancement
Australia recently announced plans to construct 3d printed homes in Sydney as part of a $20 billion project by 2020. The first house should be complete within 12 months after construction begins later next year. This new advancement could help people who need houses the most, such as those in third world countries where families do not have homes or those displaced by natural disasters like hurricanes, earthquakes, etc.
2) The Advantages of 3d Houses.
3d printed houses are three times faster to construct than traditional homes. There is no need for heavy machinery since 3d printing uses fewer materials and can be done by robots. Also, 3D Printed Houses will only cost $10000 compared to the current average house price of about $500000 in Australia.
3) How it works.
A Chinese company first developed this 3d house printing method. They were able to 3D print houses using recycled construction materials and dirt mixed with cement and water for stability. This 3d printed mixture will be used like standard concrete blocks to build the actual home structure, walls, etc. Also, this 3d printer can create homes of up to 800 square meters in size, making them very roomy compared to other methods such as the normal bricklaying process where it takes dozens of workers and time consuming manual labor, whereas 3D printing would take only a few people and hours at most.
