3D-Printed luxury home in Marfa, Texas goes on sale for $900K

Posted on

According to reports, the 3D-printed luxury home is being sold for at least $900,000. The home was designed by a company called Icon and was built using their proprietary 3D printing technology, which allows for the construction of homes in a matter of days instead of months.

The 3D-printed home in Marfa is a single-story, three-bedroom, two-bathroom property that spans over 1,000 square feet. The home features an open-plan living and dining area, a modern kitchen, and a spacious outdoor patio.

While the price tag may seem high, proponents of 3D-printed homes argue that they offer a more sustainable and cost-effective alternative to traditional construction methods. The technology has the potential to reduce waste and lower the cost of construction while also allowing for greater design flexibility.

“I had to manually hand-splice together all of the track sections on Invertigo, which took about three weeks. On Batman the Ride, there are 86 sections of track, more than double that of Invertigo. So, I worked with my wife, a computer scientist, to combine a series a macro with an executable file that she created in Microsoft Visual Studio® to automate the track-splicing process. What used to take three weeks of manual effort on Invertigo is now just a button click on Batman the Ride. I’ve also increased the number of 3D printers that I utilize from six to 10″.
