Can I Build A 3D Printed House In Australia?
A company in Oakland, California called Mighty Buildings received $30 million in venture capital funding. The construction technology company is on track to become a major player in the 3D building industry. In its warehouse the company recently printed a 350-square-foot studio demo unit in under 24 hours and it has already delivered two units to homeowners in northern and southern California.
Experts believe, however, that a 3D printed house Australia is still probably about five or ten years or so away from commercial use. RMIT in Melbourne have developed a structural node that could be used to connect building parts together but there is still difficulty in finding a builder and developer that would have the expertise to complete a full house using 3D printing technology.
However Australian startup Fastbrick has built the world’s first fully automated house in less than three days using a block-laying robot called Hadrian X.
