In India, a 3D home was built in just five days with 3D printing.
These are some of the benefits of 3D printing in home buildings-
- 3D-printing technology can create high-quality homes in a fraction of the time and cost of traditional construction.
- The process is mostly automated and therefore requires significantly less labor than traditional construction.
- Unlike conventional building methods, the printing process produces almost no waste.
- 3D printing allows for more flexibility such that making changes to a building plan are as simple as sending a new digital design to the printer.
As concerns about the sustainability of the construction sector grow, high-profile companies are taking an interest in companies that offer technologically-driven solutions for the built environment.
They can produce houses cheaper and faster than traditional building techniques and have already provided homes for people around the world. If adopted at scale, this approach could put roofs over millions of people’s heads.
