It’s been in development for a decade with no surprise that technology has evolved so much so that it’s now possible to build a house faster, cheaper, and more sustainable than your traditionally-built home using a 3D printer.
With 3D printed houses and buildings now a reality in many parts of the world, Australia has begun to follow suit.
The 3D printed cabana fitted out with a bathroom, luxurious entertainment spaces, and even a bar is now a reality here in Australia. From an estimated $150k is the starting price of a single bed, bath, granny flat styled home. The best thing about the technology is the speed of build.
As unbelievable as it may sound, 3D printed houses are the future of residential and commercial construction.
But how do they work?
Using a technology known as contour crafting, a robotic arm extruder moves around on rails and prints the house layer by layer using a concrete-type material which hardens as it goes. The concrete is heated and squeezed out through a nozzle on the end of the robotic arm. Exactly like a normal 3D printer, except much larger!
Imagine if you were to squeeze some frosting on a cake in the shape of a circle and then continually do so layer after layer on top of each other. You would eventually get a 3D object – this is how a 3D printed house works.
See some features here that are interesting to see the process. As this type of home building by print method improves it is a very effective way of providing a time efficient, cost effective solution to simple home building.
