This Company Will 3D Print a House for $10000”

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

The Texas-based builders will collaborate with housing solutions nonprofit company New Story to actualize their vision of making sustainable and quality homes, which everyone can access due to its affordable pricing. The industrial-sized printer can create houses for $10,000 but is aiming to decrease that price to just $4,000.

3D-printing offers several advantages over traditional building methods, ICON co-founder Jason Ballard said in a statement: "With 3D-printing, you not only have a continuous thermal envelope, high thermal mass, and near zero-waste, but you also have speed, a much broader design palette, next-level resiliency, and the possibility of a quantum leap in affordability". Using concrete rather than plastic, the model features a living room, bedroom, bathroom, and a curved porch. "For this venture to succeed, they have to be the best houses".

"(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 said.

Affordable housing will prove critical to sheltering people around the world.

Once testing is complete on their model, the Vulcan printer will be moved to El Salvador to begin construction.

Icon hopes to commercialise this solution, which could allow families to customise their own homes and build on land that they own.

3D printed houses, according to him, is one of the more promising technologies for creating habitats in the future.
