This $10000 3D-Printed Concrete House Took Only 24 Hours to Build

A company based in Texas is going to use 3D printing technology as a solution to the increasing problem of non-availability of affordable housing all over the globe. While it's early days yet, they hope to produce low-priced 3D-printed homes in El Salvador by late 2019.

ICON has partnered with a nonprofit housing foundation New Story to take its technology to the developing world. The home is similar in nature to the Apis Cor house and measures just 350 sq ft (32 sq m).

The company says it can now build their single-story home for $10,000 using an industrial-sized Vulcan printer but is working to drop that cost to $4,000. At SXSW, the organization flaunted a 3D-printed house which includes a parlor, room, washroom, and bended patio. This is then finished by humans who add windows, a roof, and the like. And now the price to build a home is coming down.

The group hopes to print cheap and sustainable housing, starting with a community of 50 homes in El Salvador before expanding to other locations including Haiti, Bolivia and Mexico, some of the world's poorest regions.

Spring statement 2018: the chancellor's key points at a glance
Ignoring this, the chancellor said he was looking forward to another step forward at next week's European Union summit. Forecasts for growth are expected to be revised up , while borrowing forecasts are expected to be revised down.

New Story explains on its website that a year ago, the technology they needed to create homes quickly and cheaply wasn't available yet. "I think if we were printing in plastic we would encounter some issues", explains co-founder of ICON, Jason Ballard. The production version of the printer will be able to print this single-story 650 square foot house in under 24 hours for less than $4,000. A few Pakistani new companies and business visionaries have led the pack on presenting 3D-printed innovation in different scenes at the nation over.

Even though the machinery used in 3D-printing is quite costly, however, the materials can be cheap. But they are printed in a warehouse, or they look like Yoda huts. That's not all, the company is also already looking past El Salvador and the United States into space.

While the company's main objective is to help reverse the global housing crisis, it also plans to build community-wide buy-in through the creation of manufacturing jobs that utilize local labor in those impoverished areas. He explains: "One of the big challenges is how are we going to create habitats in space..."

3D printed houses, according to him, is one of the more promising technologies for creating habitats in the future.
