This $10000 3D-Printed Concrete House Took Only 24 Hours to Build

Technology startup Icon thinks that one day, 3-D printed homes could populate swaths of the United States.

According to the report, ICON is focused on bringing affordable housing to the estimated 1.2 billion people around the world who do not have adequate shelter. Both organization now aim to build a community of 100 homes in El Salvador next year using the Vulcan printer. To combat this deficiency, an Austin-based startup has proposed a solution of developing a house by using low-priced 3D printing. "It's much cheaper than the typical American home", ICON co-founder Jason Ballard said. A few Pakistani new companies and business visionaries have led the pack on presenting 3D-printed innovation in different scenes at the nation over. The company also plans to build homes in the U.S. eventually.

"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.

However, before these homes are built, ICON is planning to trial the model by 3D printing an office in Austin. "3D printing had been our on radar but it wasn't until we got connected to ICON that we felt it would be a feasible possibility".


It showcased a prototype of this home at SXSW in Austin last week. But they are printed in a warehouse, or they look like Yoda huts. It will reduce labor costs and create minimal waste.

The printers can create a 3D structure using different materials, including food, cement.

3D-printing has become more accessible all around the globe, however, the of adoption of any large-scale utilization of 3D-printing technology is still a challenge.

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.
