13 March 2018

ICON is building this affordable house using low-priced 3D printing technology.

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. By Joe Quirke0 CommentsSan Francisco-based charity New Story has teamed with Texan construction technology firm Icon to 3D-print homes for $4,000 each.

ICON showed off a method for constructing a 650-square-foot house out of cement in only 12 to 24 hours.

The partners are hoping to build a community of 100 3D-printed homes in El Salvador next year. ICON has unveiled the Vulcan 3D printer at SXSW Festival, a manufacturing solution that could eventually provide homeless or struggling families with a roof over their heads.

New Story utilizes locally sourced materials for dwellings today, and they plan to do the same with 3D-printed houses, which will be comprised of a mortar.

New Story is also involved in urban planning, and can build homes around schools, play areas and employment opportunities.

Star Lotulelei signs with Bills
Lotulelei is reunited with McDermott, who was the Panthers defensive co-ordinator before taking over in Buffalo in January 2017. Lotulelei will now provide an anchor for the next few years for a defense being remade in general manager Brandon Beane's image.

"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. Best of all, the homes would cost just $10,000.

Like other creating nations, Pakistan has likewise observed an ascent of demo models of 3D-imprinting on a little scale.

The home was presented very recently, in March 2018, in Austin, Texas, and the printer is now packaged for the developing world.

After solving the vast housing and homelessness problems that plague the Earth, Ballard hopes to use 3D printing to help humans build homes in outer space.

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.
