Startup Company To Build 3D Print Homes For $10000

According to The Verge, which earlier reported on ICON's concept, the 3D-printed house would be made of cement and take up to one day to be printed by large 3D robots.

A trial run: The first home constructed using ICON's technology is being unveiled at SXSW in Austin, Texas, today.

While Icon and New Story are by no means the first to 3D print a building, the group claims their homes are the first to meet government standards for living in. The company also plans to build homes in the U.S. eventually. To date, the company has built more than 1,500 low-priced, high-efficiency homes in developing countries like Bolivia, Haiti, and Mexico.

"ICON believes, as do I, that 3D printing is going to be a method for all kinds of housing", New Story co-founder Alexandria Lafci added. The company is planning to explore the possibility of printing roofs as well.

New Story explains on its website that past year, the technology they needed to create homes quickly and cheaply wasn't available yet.

There are other groups which are working on printing houses. The industrial-sized printer can create houses for $10,000 but is aiming to decrease that price to just $4,000. The strength of the printed walls are said to be stronger than cinderblocks after a few days of hardening, but the house is entirely habitable after it's been set up. But they are printed in a warehouse, or they look like Yoda huts.

Since these structures need to be sturdy and hospitable, the companies aren't taking any risks and will be refining the process right up until they take it over to El Salvador.

As we've seen in cases both inside and outside of the construction sector, 3D printing offers many benefits other than just being very quick.

The printer itself can be transported from location to location using a truck, and is estimated to have the capacity to print up to 1,000 houses.

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.

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

In the meantime, if you'd like to join the effort to eliminate homelessness on Planet Earth, you can donate to the cause on the New Story website.
