World’s biggest single structure house 3D printed in one go

A Belgian construction company Kamp is showcasing its creation of the world’s biggest single structure house through 3D printing. The all-new method would result in a shift in worldwide construction as it’s more economical, far more efficient in terms of time consumed in a project, and far more applicable. Once the method gets easily accessible in all parts of the world, it would make a significant impact on the lives of millions.

The technology is new for now to apply it to mainstream construction. However, the model house build by Kamp is big enough to be equipped with features like solar panels and heated floors, etc. The two stories house measures roughly around 970 sq ft and its printing were completed in a period of three weeks. Kamp claims 3D printing construction of such houses would just take approximately two days in the future.

Bioinspired Structure with 3D Printing

Natural materials are fundamentally different from man-made materials. The first are sourced from nature, while the latter are sourced from a scientific laboratory. Nature materials generally comprise hard and soft phases arranged in complex hierarchical architectures, with characteristic dimensions spanning from the nanoscale to the macroscale. The resulting materials are lightweight and often display unique combinations of strength and toughness, but have proven difficult to mimic synthetically.
