Mexico begins construction of world's first 3D printing house neighborhood

In the countryside on the outskirts of the city in southern Mexico, the construction of a new neighborhood has begun, all of whose houses will be printed on a huge 3D printer.

Each finished house with a total area of ​​50 m2 has twobedrooms, living room, kitchen, bathroom and has good resistance to seismic activity characteristic of this region of the country. It takes 12 hours to erect the building of one such building using a 10-meter 3D printer.

Last week, the installation of roofs, windows and the interior of the first few houses was completed, and future families are already visited them.

The new neighborhood in southern Tabasco will consist of 50 houses that will be handed over to local residents through an affordable housing program for families living in extreme poverty.

Although all the buildings will be of the same type, with the help of the application the team can make small adjustments to the project on the spot.

The project is a nonprofit organization.New Story together with Icon construction company, which developed the applied 3D printing technology. They work with the state government to provide land and infrastructure. Local builders were invited to finish.

Three-dimensional printing technologies increase the speed and efficiency of production, so the US Navy plans to create 3D-printed submarines.
