The vast growth and innovation in Construction Industry via 3D Printing Technology are evidently visible, globally. Novelties do not reflect the churning up of every latest trend in fact quite opposite of this myth is the in-house reality. Wear and tear of machines, breakdowns, power-supply shortages, labor issues, insufficient designing material with expensive inventory, lengthy construction cycles and slow work activities are some of the biggest drawbacks faced by every builder, developer even an architect or designer in construction industry.
To make the processes quick and appropriate, backed up with creativity and ease of work, 3D printing can be a fruitful invention in vanishing of major aches from the industry.
Eco-friendly, cost-effective production of elaborated designs
The usage of 3D printing method has been proved to be a step ahead towards creation of an eco-friendly environment eliminating the conventional building processes. The business applications are found to be more profitable in comparison to consumer market in terms of sales, a bonus for builders and developers as well as investors/shareholders.
European market is currently focusing on the modernization of ‘reversible concrete’ with the development of an additive printing method which challenges concrete as an impermanent way out. With the increased utilization of green and sustainable material, the algorithmic patterned binder used, possess the potential of creating any geometrical shape that too without leaving any residual.
Furthermore, 3D setups come up with facilities of fastening up the work while eradicating excessive labor costs. It has the potential of serving as complete package reducing the construction budgets, relaxing site-engineer’s work along with the production of intricate architectural structures.
Slow progression of 3D equipment in construction industry
A construction company facilitating you with the services of house customization to HVAC guaranteed services and even house remodeling has definitely set its deadlines to meet for fulfilling client’s demands timely and accurately. Experimenting with the limited edition equipment of 3D printing can be a time-consuming and costly process due to the lesser number of equipment.
To make the technology relatively attractive the need of diverse quality equipment is high. The 3D invention contributes slowly rather than a rapid radical modification within the construction industry. Thou with the passage of time latest 3D printing projections do possess the prospective of ruling the construction sector, as the decade ends.
The current architect’s obsession – 3D printed houses
3D printed designs have been a hot topic ever since the launch of 3D printing in the construction industry. From the concept of ‘contour crafting’ by a Californian professor. The process revolves around the utilization of programmed crane for creation of walls via concrete-like material whereas a single iteration for insertion of wiring and plumbing will complete the manufacturing of one printed home.
On the other side, Chinese Construction Company has claimed the development of massive printer for practical implementation of 3D printed houses within 24 hours where in Amsterdam construction of 3D primal canal house is in talks. All these efforts are in-progress worldwide with the aim of promoting eco-friendly, custom-designed structures from renewable resources.
Is Space the final destination for 3D printing technology?
The title of revolutionary technology won’t be suited perfectly for 3D printing if it was restricted to the creation of structures on Earth only. The joint efforts of ESA and NASA are effortlessly made to invent manufacturing processes for establishment of structures on Moon and even Mars. Limiting the quantity of mass to be transported with the idea of lunar regolith as a building element, NASA has also envisioned the usage of 3D equipped space crafts controlled by robots to forecast the space conditions for future constructions.
Thus the rapid expansion and knowledge of 3D printing technology in accompanied with the brilliant minds will broaden the significance of this technology in the construction sector. The combined efforts of architects while getting their hands on the Construction Industry via 3D Technology will be a tempting experience to witness by this century while genuinely transforming it into an interplanetary technology.
