September
Greetings!

From our smart devices to advanced computers and sophisticated engineering equipment - technology seems to be accelerating faster than we can keep up. So many aspects of everyday life are being affected, and housing is no exception. With home prices rising, tight housing inventories and the threat of climate change, home buyers are looking for a wider variety of options. A solution to both home affordability and sustainability may come from an unexpected source. Please read more below about 3D home printing.

Sincerely,

Susie and Nichola

3D-Printed Homes

Most businesses and people use 3D printing to create small scale models or mechanical parts, but some companies are using it to build homes. Massive versions of the 3D printer in your office can print entire buildings in record time. These systems work mostly on their own. After workers set up the printers and program a blueprint, the machines get to work and can finish the bones of the build without any further input.

The 3D printers we're most familiar with use plastics or metals, but these large building printers print in construction materials. ICON is a company using its Vulcan II printer and Lavacrete, a proprietary cement-based material. The process can print a home in less than 48 hours using a minimal number of workers and virtually no waste.

3D printing can create houses that are both affordable and eco-friendly. These machines allow companies to build homes faster, which saves on costs. The speed of these machines can increase availability of living spaces in areas where they are desperately needed. Many of these homes are also resistant to factors like storms and earthquakes.

Housing printers also make the home building prenvironmentally friendly. The printers are electronic, so builders don't need to use gas-powered machinery as much. Since they use natural elements and sustainable materials, like locally-sourced concrete mixtures or clay, they don't require companies to ship material from a distant source. This decreases emissions. Earthen construction is also naturally insulating, and if these houses ever need to be demolished, the materials are recyclable so that people can use them again.

3D printers can do a lot, but they still can't do it all. The technology's place in the wider construction world will likely involve a hybrid approach to building. Workers are needed to add items that are too complex for robots to assemble, such as cabinets, HVAC systems and appliances.
