GUIDE TO 3D PRINTING HOMES
STEPS AND REQUIREMENTS TO GETTING A HOME 3D PRINTED
1. Get a house design from an architect
A 3D Printed House requires a blueprint design using a modelling software program defining and specifying construction details of the home. This can be done in-house at LUYTEN Construction or with other companies that specialise in home designs in the construction industry.
2. Get your building permit and development application approved
3D printed homes require legal approval to be built, with processes for regulatory approval being the same for traditionally built homes. The materials science behind 3D construction printing technology supersedes current codes, due to proven stronger and more resilient homes, however, most requirements will be within the home designs to meet regulation. LUYTEN's Ultimatecrete is the first and only approved 3d printable concrete in Australia and its licensed to use worldwide.
3. Start building process of your construction site (earthworks, footings or slab)
The construction site will require preparation before printing the home can commence. This process is mostly easy and can be done by your local builder or building partners working together on the 3d printed home project. This will include the traditional concrete slab being poured according to the home design blueprint.
4. Get your first home 3D printed in Australia
To get your home 3D printed is an elaborate process, firstly the 3D printing technology will be transported to the construction site, then the materials and machinery set up will be the final step before 3d construction can begin. The set up time depends on conditions of weather and the construction site conditions, however, the fastest time to complete this can be in 20 minutes. The usual construction printing time for a 3 bedroom home is between 24 hours to 3 days.
5. Turnkey and finishing the home
After the internal and external walls of your home are 3d printed, the roof comes on top, and 80% of your house is built. This will make the job of trades such as plumbers and electricians become plug and play as the 3d printed walls will have all service point openings ready, due to the digitisation of the blueprint, that means you will have your functional finished house within a period of 3 days to 5 days maximum and be officially able to move into the home of your dreams.
