3D Printer Can Create Complete Home in One Day

[Zn!~xTJ8u~)_(z

An American company says it has completed the first permitted 3D printed home in the United States.

hmQje3@BdFvJ~j8R.v

The home was shown to reporters and visitors at the South by Southwest technology conference and music festival. The event took place earlier this month in Austin, Texas.

Z@8o[C6Zu-eecA

Building company ICON has developed large 3D printers that build homes with mortar, a hard and strong material. ICON uses robotics, computer software programs and advanced materials to make houses.

vO(d72TCLAWT8V5FB&N

Jason Ballard is the company's co-founder.

X7^CB~RQ_9BnXqB#rb

"So I'm standing in front of the first permitted 3D-printed home in America. This house was actually printed in high winds, blowing dust and rain."

+L,MSUQebD@_g

It is important for the printing process to operate in extreme conditions, such as weather disasters. The goal is to print homes in developing countries.

YTqEq|wyxUbYc=6ni.(

ICON's 3-D printer is made of lightweight aluminum, and measures 4.5-meters tall by 9 meters wide. The homes are printed on-site, so the equipment has to be light enough to move from one property to the next.

LH]iV4VE=]tT

Ballard imagines that someday, many 3-D printers will operate around the world to make homes. "It's actually a lot more simple to build a printer than it is to build a house," he said.

Td]PKp4lB!xx*VP&

"We ran this printer at about a quarter speed to print this house, and we were able to complete the house in less than 48 hours of print time."

^y8XQ#~rnVjQu%qI

Ballard says that at full speed, the printing process could take as little as 12 hours.

|92.tC!!)PDEC4q[a

ICON has teamed up with a not-for-profit group called New Story. Together, they are attempting to help provide a quick, cheap housing solution for the millions of people who need it most.

H-%)hF9([+

Brett Hagler is founder and chief executive officer of New Story.

yObGPb[9_S,I

"The magnitude of the problem that we face is so big, it's about a billion people that don't have one of life's most basic human needs, and that's safe shelter."

C1f#]q*ykRn

Hagler says his organization already works on housing needs with poor families in different areas. But he says that to really make a difference, the program will need to greatly expand.

cwq3pGB-R;K@(SV

He added that since the 3D printing process is so much faster than traditional homebuilding, a whole community could be built in just a few months.

QkS0k*+cd~Lyx)[

"That has to come through significantly decreasing cost, increasing speed, while doing that without sacrificing quality."

lhNLX5Fu36d[Y(xv

Hagler notes that a 3D printed home costs a lot less than a traditional home.

6Ft_yF7e8EM

"Traditional style, one of New Story's homes, is about $6,500 per home, right. We believe over time, we can get the new home below $4,000."

vdhM!#p&oU(u*Z0WcE^h

The goal is to bring the new building technology to the world's poorest and underserved first.

eaxUhM!VfY7s=TaZ,|4T

New Story is currently working with local nonprofits, governments and families to help raise money. It plans to start 3D printing homes in El Salvador later this year.
