(EstateNewsWire.com, November 05, 2019 ) Market Overview
3D printing is the computer-controlled sequential layering of materials to create three-dimensional shapes.
It is particularly useful in prototyping and for the manufacture of geometrically complex components. The market for 3D Printing is proliferating in the construction industry owing to its advantages such as new shapes & design possibilities, lower costs, remote location construction, more precise building, and many more.
However, 3D printed architecture has certain limitations such as expensive initial investment, partial-ly-built houses, and rough exterior.
Material extrusion, powder bonding and wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAC) are the primary technologies used in the construction industry. Material extrusion is also known as concrete printing, contour crafting, and deposition modeling.
The process differs from the long-established sprayed-concrete method, in that it applies the material precisely and takes a layer-by-layer approach. WAAC method involves the use of an electric arc to melt wire and a robotic welder or drip feeder to construct a metal object drop by drop.
The process has gained extensive publicity through MX3D's bridge project in Amsterdam. As of now, 3D printing technology is limited a few applications such as buildings, bridges, printed molds, building components, architectural models, and interior designs.
Growing construction costs, raw material cost and labour costs across the globe will boost the market for construction 3D printing shortly.
With the help of new technologies in the construction industry, the building process has be-come more convenient, but the overall cost of the architecture is increasing eventually. The above graph shows the price of construction per m2 of land across significant countries. This is where contour crafting comes into picture which helps in reducing the cost of con-struction by 60% approximately.
On a large scale, 3D printed architectures would have the potential for minimizing the ma-terial costs and labour cost. This could be helpful for emerging countries, where homes could be built for less.
High capital investment and regulations are the major restraints of 3D printing in con-struction Market
The adoption of 3D printing in construction has been hampered by several factors such as regulations on building codes, performance-based standards and wide regional variation in regulations. In many regions, clients are unconvinced about the safety and durability of 3D printed buildings. However, some applications are already developed commercially such as 3D printed moulds, architectural models, and some of the building components.
