With the increasing improvement of 3D printing technology, large-size 3D printers and the development and production of diverse materials, 3D printing buildings from models to final shaped houses all show that 3D printing technology can even completely subvert the traditional construction industry.
ETH Zurich successfully used 3D sand printing technology to build a lightweight concrete slab of 80 square meters. This is also the world’s first building project that uses sand printing technology for comprehensive modeling. This three-story house is the world’s first house designed, planned and constructed using digital processes.
In November 2017, General Secretary Xi Jinping gave important instructions on the results of promoting the “toilet revolution”. In response to the country’s call for a toilet revolution, the space gray 3D architectural printing team also designed several toilets, and used printing technology to construct and print a 25-square-meter toilet.
The 3D printed four-bedroom house completed by the patented 3D printing technology BatiPrint3D uses an arched wall design that can improve thermal resistance and air circulation, enabling barrier-free layout in the house.
It is worth mentioning that this house is built around a century-old tree, which is particularly original and does not produce construction waste with the same traditional craftsmanship. Such a unique 95-square-foot house can be 3D printed in just 54 hours.
