Changing The World With 3D Printed Houses
Science & Tech / /
3D printing is almost revolutionary and it is for sure changing this world. This time we live in is a perfect time of modern day technology where the 3D printer takes a big part in. From printed food to printed shirts and now, folks, there can even printed houses. Read below to find out more.
We present to you the very much advanced printer called BigDelta, the world’s largest 3D printer and it is focusing on its very first printed house. With only using mud as a primary material, this house is almost finished and we sure can’t wait to see the result.
While it was just a matter of time when someone would have this idea of building or printing something bigger in time where almost everything can be printed to look and feel the same as the original material. When real organs were first printed, we thought that’s it, there isn’t something else more impressive than this but here we are now, building houses with the help of a machine.
The company that created this machine called BigDelta is a group of creative people from Italy, an Italian engineering company WASP, which had a brilliant idea for which they will only use mud.
In a press release, the team working on the World’s Advanced Saving Project (WASP), described their target niche, low-cost housing:
International estimates foresee a rapid growth of adequate housing requirements for over 4 billion people […] The United Nations calculated that over the next 15 years there will be an average daily requirement of 100,000 new housing units to meet this demand.
Building houses quickly and on a very tight budget through additive manufacturing, is a very interesting proposition for more than one good reason. As it is presumed, there would be a need for almost a hundred thousand new homes daily, worldwide, for the next 15 years.
This will help a lot of people who lost their homes during a flood, earthquake and the homeless. In this way, building houses will be a cheap and quick way to help the ones who live in areas hit by natural disasters. But also, the company claims that using natural, renewable materials is less harmful to nature and environment than using cement which generates carbon dioxide.
Although this machine is not first of its kind, hopefully it would be the best one yet.
