What are 3D-printed buildings?/FAQs over 3D-printed buildings.

1. What are 3D-printed buildings?




The buildings that are built by using the latest construction technology that uses the 3D printing method are known as 3D-printed buildings. 

The machine printer lays down a thin layer of materials over one another to create the structure. The machine is commanded by the digital designs, that are stored in the hard drives of the computer.

With this technology, the house can be built within very less time & involves minimal workers.

 

2. How much does it cost for a 3D-printed house in India?

As per the startup company Tvasta, the cost of a 3D-printed house will be around 5 lakhs to 5.5 lakhs. The cost is nearly 20% of the construction cost of conventional 2BHK houses.


3. Which is the first 3D-printed house in India?

The first 3D-printed house was built on IIT -Madras campus by a startup company  Tvasta. It is a 1BHK house, having a built-up area of 600 sq. ft.


The inauguration of the house was done by Finance Minister Nirmala Sita Raman on 27th April 2021.


4. Are 3D -printed houses strong?

As 3D-printed buildings are quite young, there is no time-tested proof for their strength & longevity.

As per the company's claims, 3D-printed houses are stronger & can withstand a lot of additional forces.


5. What is the lifespan of a 3D-printed building?

A well-constructed 3D-printed building will last for a minimum of 100 years & could cross 300 years of lifespan. 

To enhance its lifespan, the 3D-printed layers should be built as one structural body having proper hydration throughout its construction process.

The lifespan is calculated based on the material properties & comparable study of the building models.


Thank you for going through this article. Have a good day 😄.
