New Age Techniques used for 3D Printed House

The house construction has indeed undergone a sea change. 3D printed house is the call of the season. Conceived by a group of architects, this innovative 3D printed house consists of several rooms made from a large sized three dimensional printer. The printer uses huge bricks from different layers of the molten plastic where the house builders can easily stack like blocks. These plastic bricks can become framework for the rooms and can snap together to become the first three dimensional building of the world.


First from twigs and dried grass, then from sand and bricks, now, house construction has gone a long way. This type of printed house is creating a buzz everywhere. With this type of three dimensional printing, wastage is negligible. Transportation cost is reduced and everything is melted as well as recycled. Indeed, this type of building construction is a good initiative to make a city clean and dirt-free.


Do you wish to know more about this new-age building? The following are the few facts that you must know more about this structure.


Use of Superb Materials:


A huge 6-meters long printer is used for printing different components of the building from bio-plastic mixture. This plastic mix is used as a special adhesive, containing nearly seventy five percent of plant oil and it is reinforced with the microfibers. For better results, the architects also have conducted few tests to find best materials used for building a three dimensional printed building. For example, they have done a test where they have used a mixture that is prepared with translucent plastic as well as wood fibre. This mixture looked like liquid form of Medium density fibreboard (MDF) that could cut with saw or polished with mechanical sander or sandpaper. Further innovation also is expected to evolve in the coming days. They are planning to print material along with structure as well as insulation at the same time.


According to experts, printing a house is a path breaking initiative being implemented in the construction industry. Initially, each portion of the house property is printed inside 1:20 scale on a tiny printer. The next step is to print the components in final size and in different layers by using the huge printer. The architects can make use of the method for extending different layers of the molten plastic, starting from desktop trinkets to huge building chunks. Their main objective is to complete the internal lobby as well as the front facade of the house. Other components such as 3D printed kitchen, storage and study rooms, guest rooms are also created.


Stylish Finishes:


One of the biggest advantages is that this building made by 3d Architects can be easily changed as well as improved in due course of time. More stylish finishes can be expected from this house construction. For example the finishing of the house may appear as if the bunches of the black spaghettis are being spread.


Other 3D architectural innovations in the pipeline!


While few architects initiate this process of printing a house, they have rightly joined the league of other architects who have started experimenting for using printing technology for architectural construction for the last couple of years. Since the year 2008, the researchers developed a technology called contour crafting that involves a computer-based gantry in order to paint different structures in concrete structures. This kind of crafting can use to print multi-storeyed building with a printer climbing building structures whenever it grows.


Another project is undertaken where the architects plan to print a house that exactly looks like Mobius strip. Mobius is a type of surface with only one side and one boundary element. For printing this type of house, the experts use a printer that uses a mixture of sand and binding material for creating synthetic sandstone structure. This technology can be mainly used for printing small sized pavilion.
