3D Concrete Printing is a relatively new technology that allows the creation of complex structures using a computer-controlled robot to extrude layers of concrete. The technology has the potential to revolutionize the construction industry by providing faster and more cost-effective building solutions.
One of the most promising applications of 3D Concrete Printing is housing construction. Several successful 3D-printed housing projects have been worldwide, demonstrating the technology’s potential to provide affordable and sustainable housing.
Some notable examples include:
- Apis Cor: A Russian company that built a 3D-printed house in just 24 hours in 2017. The house has a living area of 38 square meters and costs only $10,134 to build.
- Winsun: A Chinese company that has 3D-printed several houses and apartments since 2014, including a five-story apartment building.
- ICON: is an American company that has developed a 3D-printing technology for housing construction. They have printed several houses in the US and Mexico, including a community of 3D-printed houses for the homeless in Austin, Texas.
3D Concrete Printing has the potential to revolutionize the construction industry by providing faster, more cost-effective, and more sustainable building solutions, particularly in the area of housing construction. However, the technology is still relatively new, and some technical and regulatory challenges must be addressed before it becomes a mainstream construction method.
According to the city of Eindhoven (The Netherlands), “The municipality of Eindhoven, the Eindhoven University of Technology, and the companies Van Wijnen, Vesteda, Saint-Gobain Weber Beamix, and Witteveen + Bos are the project partners that will take care of this. The realization of the first of five planned 3D-printed concrete houses will start this year. The project is the world’s first commercial housing project based on 3D-concrete printing. The houses will all be occupied, meet all modern comfort requirements, and be purchased and let out by a real estate company.”
