3D printing is changing many industries around the world. The construction industry, especially for domestic premises, is no exception.
Throughout history, the construction industry has largely remained unchanged, with most structures still requiring workers to add layers of bricks or other building materials atop each other. However, the conventional approach is becoming outdated in the modern age, as it heavily relies on individual skill, produces large amounts of waste and noise, and yields low productivity.
Moving into the territory is 3D printing, which promises to build houses faster, cheaper, and more accurately. With benefits like these, it’s no wonder that 3D printing construction is gaining momentum. To put things in perspective, in 2016, the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates declared that by 2030, a quarter of all the buildings in Dubai would be 3D printed.
Over the last five years, 3D printing technology has produced numerous incredible structures all over the world, including 3D printed houses, cabins, offices, bridges, pavilions, large-scale structures, shelters, and more! As 3D construction grows, it has the potential to disrupt the traditional construction process.
Before we get into 3D printing, let’s take a short look at the advantages of 3D printed houses:
Inexpensive: Large-scale industrial buildings can be constructed for a relatively low price. Construction sites also need fewer workers.
Shorter construction periods: With many structures printed in a matter of days, 3D printing shelters, for example, can be beneficial for victims of natural disasters.
Environmentally friendly: The materials you can use for 3D printing houses include concrete, plastic, and raw soil and natural waste from the rice production chain.
Uncommon shapes: 3D printing can generate shapes that are impossible or too expensive to manufacture otherwise.
Otherworldly potential: NASA already has plans to use 3D printing for colonies on Mars.
Celopro® cellulose ethers is an important additive for 3D printing too, together with Celopro, other chemical specialties been applied. Celopro MT3050 is a product specially developed for this application.
