ADVANTAGES OF 3D PRINTED HOMES
3D Concrete Printed Home Advantages
1. Freedom of architectural design
Construction 3D Printing makes complex home designs easy to achieve without the added costs usually associated with traditional methods of construction. This allows for architects to design and print the plans directly from blueprints without difficulty or extra expenses.
2. High quality homes building material
The use of 3D concrete printing reduces the need for different materials, making concrete a primary material when constructing walls and other components in homes. This results in higher quality homes that are more resilient than traditionally built wood homes, due to the most strong concrete mixtures such as LUYTEN's Ultimatecrete, which offers a compressive strength of 82.5 MPa after 28 days, four times stronger than standard concrete.
3. Energy efficiency
The combination of architectural design freedom and high quality materials used in 3D printing help to maximize energy efficiency within homes. Specialized home designs can be made to better withstand environmental conditions like wind and sun rays while also decreasing energy consumption by making the home easier to heat or cool with self-regulating materials such as concrete. Studies conducted have reported energy savings of up to 30% with optimized architectural designs, while research has found that modernized insulation materials used in 3D printed homes could reduce energy consumption by 50%.
