3DCP innovation is moving fast! As 3D house printing is being adopted, it is moving to the mainstream. But what is next in the pipeline for 3DCP innovation? Where can improvements be made? There are great minds in the private sector and universities collaborating along with Printerra to further improve the quality and speed of future builds.
3DCP Innovation Will Include:
- New concrete mixes: Researchers are developing new concrete mixes that are stronger, more durable, and more sustainable than traditional concrete. These new mixes, or “green concrete” could make 3D printed homes more affordable and environmentally friendly.
- Recycled materials: 3D printers can be used to print objects from recycled materials, such as plastic bottles and construction debris. This could help to reduce waste and create a more sustainable construction process.
- Multi-nozzle printers: Multi-nozzle printers can print multiple layers of material at the same time. This could significantly speed up the printing process.
- High-speed printing: High-speed printers can print objects much faster than traditional printers. This could make it possible to print 3D houses in a matter of days or weeks.
- Robotic arms: Robotic arms can be used to operate 3D printers. This could free up humans to focus on other tasks, such as designing houses and managing the printing process.
- Intelligent software: Intelligent software can be used to control the 3D printing process. This could help to ensure that houses are printed accurately and efficiently.
These are just a few of the ways that the next generation of innovation in 3D house printing is likely to happen in the areas of materials, speed, and automation. As the technology continues to develop, it is likely that 3D printed homes will become more affordable, sustainable, and accessible.
