3D Printing in everyday life

3D printing ( technology has proven beneficial in the medical, aerospace, and tool-making arenas since its inception, there’s one other field that’s potentially poised to break out: the construction sector. (

3D Printing in the construction industry means greatly reduced production time. That’s because the machines themselves are very fast, some of them are capable of manufacturing 600 to 800-square-foot (55 to 75-square-meter) home in just 24 hours. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it?   3D printers are also fully automated, which eliminates human error. The machine just needs to be monitored, but most of the production process doesn’t involve any human help. Also, 3D printers don’t use additional tooling. They have the construction programmed and they just produce it, there is no need for additional support, different materials, and other aspects to keep in mind that traditional methods require.

The main advantage of using 3D printing in the construction industry is saving a lot of production costs on material waste. That’s because a 3D printer, such as robotic arms, uses exactly the amount of material they need. Producing buildings layer by layer and with lattice structures inside allows for a huge cost reduction. Not only that, but they are also capable of using recycled materials.   This factor also benefits the environment. 3D printing has a much smaller impact than traditional ways of manufacturing

With 3D printers now capable of printing building walls and processing cement, the technology could help reshape construction as we know it
