Housing and Construction-3D Printing Use Cases

Desktop 3D printing is limited to producing smaller items, while manufacture-scale additive workflow can produce much larger functional components. In the last few years, various initiatives have gotten underway to create houses and larger structures that are entirely the product of 3D printing, opening new frontiers in sustainable living and construction.The 3D printing technique gives freedom of form to architects, even with previously less malleable building materials like concrete. More broadly speaking, it allows fully sustainable and energy-efficient homes to be built that also meet modern comfort standards. Construction by this means could be entirely waste-free, and provide very low-utility cost.In February of 2019, Texas company Sunconomy announced plans to sell the world’s first fully 3D-printed house. It will look something like this.Housing and Construction-3D Printing Use CasesMX3D are using the multi-axis digital workflow to print a stainless-steel bridge that will soon be installed across the Oudezijds Achterburgwal canal in Amsterdam.
