This 3D Printed Small Concrete House Costs Just $10000

And ICON hopes that eventually, it can bring the cost of homes down to $4,000. The charity's mission is to place people without adequate housing into a proper shelter, taking them away from the throes of "survival mode".

The company demonstrated its innovation in Austin at SXSW's annual Interactive Festival, constructing their prototype in real time.

Austin startup ICON unveiled a new method of mass producing small homes with a massive 3D printer in a process that the company says takes just 12 to 24 hours. If all goes according to plan, the companies are hoping to make about 100 homes for residents in El Salvador next year. To combat this deficiency, an Austin-based startup has proposed a solution of developing a house by using low-priced 3D printing.

"The walls of the printed house are stronger than cinder blocks after a few days of hardening", said Icon co-founder Evan Loomis, "although the house is ready for human occupation after the home is set up - which entails crew members installing windows, a wooden roof, basic plumbing, and electrical plumbing as the house is printed".

The junior nationalist coalition party SNS said on Monday that it could accept either early elections or a cabinet reshuffle. Critics say Kalinak can not guarantee an independent probe into the February killings of Kuciak and his fiancee.

"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 added.

How long will the homes last? The company also plans to build homes in the U.S. eventually. However, by working alongside ICON, they now have access to the impressive Vulcan 3D printer.

As we've seen in cases both inside and outside of the construction sector, 3D printing offers many benefits other than just being very quick.

The printers can create a 3D structure using different materials, including food, cement. He explains: "One of the big challenges is how are we going to create habitats in space..."
