3D Printing is Changing Construction

3D PRINT

More and more architects and contractors around the globe are starting to build 3D residential structures including houses and apartment buildings.

How it works

The 3D printing is done using super-size printers which use a special concrete and composite mixture that is thicker than regular concrete, allowing it to be self-supporting as it sets.

Why it’s so Popular

3D printing does away with many of the design constraints that other methods of construction are often hindered by.

Also the curved concrete structures that it creates can be hollow which uses less material and saves space and money.
