3D Printed Houses

3-D-printed alloys

Posted on Updated on

In the opinion of Lead author and Ph.D. candidate from RMIT University’s School of Engineering, Carmelo Todaro, “the promising results could inspire new forms of additive manufacturing.
If you look at the microscopic structure of 3-D printed alloys, they’re often made up of large and elongated crystals.
This can make them less acceptable for engineering applications due to their lower mechanical performance and increased tendency to crack during printing.
But the microscopic structure of the alloys we applied ultrasound to during printing looked markedly different: the alloy crystals were very fine and fully equiaxed, meaning they had formed equally in all directions throughout the entire printed metal part.”

It’s more affordable housing, and it heats and cools the house with less energy, no more paying $150,000 and up for a really nice home, and it will bring back the concrete industry 🙏.

Wow!!! I’m amazed! I really got to do this 3d printing i have a few dream homes that i want to build. I’m glad i watched this. Pretty sure my homes would cost millions doing it the old ways. Thanks.

That is amazing. I like 3d printing too. I’m dreaming to have small 3d printing machine. Actually I discovered this in Qatar when I was working on my invention. we just prepared the 3d drawing and the machine did it. we add some drawing and reshaping and it was real. Making a houses by 3d printing is some thin i cant imagine but its looks like real too,

I am so excited to see more in the future from this technology! Especially in the medical or art professions!

I wish to print my own house at low cost with my own design and customize to my needs
i wish this will come true soon

One 3D printer just made an office building in Dubai in just 17 days.

Some worries,

What about hvac, plumbing, electrical, insulation, etc?

You still need carpenters, plumbers, electricians and so forth to build out the rest of the house… this is just building the framework..
Likely mixed in w structural mud (concrete)
It’ll take longer
24 hours though I’m sure. Windows, insulation, painting, essential furnishing like a bathtub, plumbing, electrical wiring, blah blah blah… I don’t think the 3D printer will do any of that.
What is your opinion?

 

This building in Dubai is the largest 3D-printed structure in the world — and it took just 3 workers and a printer to build it

A family permanently lives in a 3D-printed home

Posted on Updated on

A family permanently lives in a 3D-printed home, take a look at the ‘Yhnova project’ in France, according to Ville de Nantes, “Nantes has provided the site for a house, Yhnova Batiprint3D™, built in just a few days, thanks to a 3D printer. This innovation, of the University of Nantes, was made possible thanks to the pooling of know-how of different partners: scientists, industrialists, public and socio-economic actors.”

Do they keep the foam once the concrete is dry? I did not understand that part. Thanks in advance.
