3D Printed Houses Might be Closer Than You Thought

3D Printed Houses Might be Closer Than You Thought | 3D-printing-s2897670 | Scoop.it

3D printing seems to be the latest “ultra cool” movement in technology. Having heard about 3D printing (not only small 3D printers), one can begin imagining how would the world look like if 3D printing will become such a common procedure like paper printing. A world full of home-made toys, utensils, dishes and God knows what else. But, what if, 3D printing could be that cool as to solve the issue of shelter across the world, what if there could be a feasible solution to 3D print houses?

Such was the idea of ContourCrafting, whose CEO had a very insightful TED talk this year (video below). Professor Behrokh Khoshnevis, from the University of Southern California is the man behind this awesome concept. In plain English, he wants to build a 3D printer that would be able of building a house in less than one day, in 20 hours!

Fabricated: The Ten Principles of 3D Printing

Fabricated: The Ten Principles of 3D Printing | 3D-printing-s2897670 | Scoop.it

Some of these principles already hold true today. Others will come true in the next decade or two (or three). By removing familiar, time-honored manufacturing constraints, 3D printing sets the stage for a cascade of downstream innovation. In the following chapters we explore how 3D printing technologies will change the ways we work, eat, heal, learn, create and play. Let's begin with a visit to the world of manufacturing and design, where 3D printing technologies ease the tyranny of economies of scale.

 

Hod Lipson and Melba Kurman are leading experts on 3D printing, frequently speaking and advising on this technology to industry, academia, and government.  Lipson's lab at Cornell University has pioneered interdisciplinary research in 3D printing, product design, artificial intelligence, and smart materials. Kurman is a technology analyst and business strategy consultant who writes about game-changing technologies in lucid, engaging language.

Gilles Retsin of Softkill Design on 3D printed houses | 3D-printing-s2897670 | Scoop.it
Gilles Retsin of Softkill Design discusses plans for a 3D printed house and the sudden interest in printed architecture.

 

Interview: earlier today, London studio Softkill Design unveiled plans for a 3D printed house. We spoke to Softkill's Gilles Retsin about the viability of printed architecture and how he intends to print a plastic dwelling in just three weeks.

"When we started this research, it was a kind of science fiction," he says. "It's not actually that far off any more."
