3D printing in construction will revolutionize the sector

3D printing in construction

What will the future of construction look like? 3D printing can be used in almost any field and scope, from architecture, engineering, education, healthcare to construction. Many experts believe that 3D printing will revolutionize the construction sector in the future, as it allows a wide range of possibilities in its use.

Several projects around the world have used technology to rapidly develop interesting and innovative structures. For example, in early summer a 3D printer was used to build a concrete house in Antwerp, Belgium.

Main advantages of 3D printing in construction

This type of technology offers a wide range of possibilities to both builders and architects because houses and buildings can be printed in parts. In addition, 3D printing does not require molds and therefore waste is avoided.

Steel, concrete and even synthetic plastics can be used in 3D printing in construction. The bricks used in houses using this technology are shaped like lego and made of high-strength concrete. One of the advantages of smart bricks is that they reduce energy costs by up to 60% thanks to their thermal properties.

According to experts, 3D printing ensures that every inch of material is used, making it much easier to calculate how much will be needed in the first place. For this reason, as concerns about the sustainability of the construction sector increase, high-profile companies are becoming interested in companies that offer technology-driven solutions.

In short, 3D printing in construction has the ability to significantly reduce the amount of waste and carbon emissions in the construction process. This is achieved through more efficient use of material through the additive manufacturing process and lower emissions from transportation and construction equipment, as only strictly necessary materials need to be brought to the site.
