Use 3D printers for building houses

One of the leaders in the 3D printing sector is Italian company Centro Sviluppo Progetti which is looking to use 3D printers for building houses on site and use materials available from the immediate area to do so.

The firm has already created a 12-metre tall 3D printer powered by solar power that uses soil, water and vegetable fibre to build a structure.

Their next step is to use the Big Delta 3D printer to create an eco-village in a town near Bologna.

There is also a 3D printing project that’s gathering media interest to create a steel bridge in Amsterdam.

The Dutch firm behind the scheme, MX3D, has been testing and experimenting over the last few years to create a bridge and they are now putting what they have learned into practice.

A spokesman for the firm said: “The bridge is a possibility and we will demonstrate what the possibilities are and not to show this as a new way for constructing bridges; we are building what we could not build before.

“People can use their own imaginations for developing new ideas.”
