3D printing has long passed from the experimental stage to becoming a full-fledged manufacturing process. Known in the industry as additive manufacturing, it is being used to produce an ever-expanding range of solutions, from dental implants to jet engine parts. In fact, it was just a matter of time before reaching the construction industry. In simple terms, 3D printed houses are built by depositing material layer by layer. A pasty concrete mix is ​​extruded through a nozzle that is guided by a massive gantry, creating walls of soil one layer at a time.

It doesn't seem complex at first glance, and it really isn't. The implications of such a construction process, however, are immense. Although still in its early stages, it has already shown promising results and quickly gained media attention. The question is, is the hype surrounding building 3D printing really deserved? We believe 3D printed houses could be the next big thing.
