Europe's First 3-D Home

3-D printed building's are being tried out in multiple countries and Europe's first 3-D house has become a home to a Dutch couple. This home was printed in sections and the assembly was done on the site, where the roof was added too. 

Do you understand what 3-D printing is?

3-D, which stands for three dimentional, printing uses special printers that combine material to create 3-D objects under a computer's supervision. The objects are created from a special digital file that the computer is given. 

The parts of the house were printed using a large robotic arm that pumped out liquid concrete as per the design. 

The one-storey house in the Netherlands is designed to resemble a boulder (which is a large natural rock) and to merge with the landscape around it. This house is part of the world's first commercial project based on 3-d concrete printing. 

Did you know, India has also jumped onto the 3-D printed homes wagon?

This neat home shown below was unveiled on 27th April, 2021 by a Chennai-based firm. These homes can be built in just 5 days!

One of the advantages of 3-D printing in construction is that it uses less material than conventional building processes, thus making 3-D structures more sustainable.
