Startup Company To Build 3D Print Homes For $10000

New Story teamed with Texas-based ICON Technologies, to build a 3D printer specifically for the goal of constructing houses in developing countries. And ICON hopes that eventually, it can bring the cost of homes down to $4,000.

In order to 3D print a building, however, ICON needs to create a schematic. ICON plans to use the technology to build a 100-home community in El Salvador next year.

Right now, about 1.2 billion people in cities around the world lack affordable and secure housing, according to a new report from the World Resources Institute Ross Center for Sustainable Cities, which equals about 330 million households. Its first model has a living room, bedroom, and bathroom.

Many industry experts say 3D printing is already revolutionizing the way products are created and will only continue to do so in the future.

While the company's main objective is to help reverse the global housing crisis, it also plans to build community-wide buy-in through the creation of manufacturing jobs that utilize local labor in those impoverished areas. According to Alexandria Lafci, co-founder of New Story, the charity has also been 3D printing homes for communities in Haiti, El Salvador, and Bolivia. The latest organization to adopt 3D printing into its humanitarian efforts is New Story. ICON isn't just focused on building homes fast, but is aiming to make them extremely affordable as well.

In response to soaring property prices in Australia (and other major cities around the world), a small but growing group of young people are joining the tiny house movement.

Ballard told The Verge that both ICON and New Story hope to use these homes when human civilization leaves Earth. The current $6,500 homes are built to last for generations and each donation is paired directly with a family so donors can see their impact.

'For this venture to succeed, they have to be the best houses.

The portable printer is created to function with near zero-waste and to work under unpredictable constraints (limited water, power, and labor infrastructure) to tackle housing shortages in underserved communities throughout the world. "We are going to install air quality monitors". You're not going to open a two by four and open screws. Through their proprietary 3D printing technology and cutting-edge materials, ICON provides sustainable solutions to a number of our world's most pressing issues, including the pandemic of homelessness in the developing world, the difficulty of constructing off-planet space habitats, and the exorbitant cost of customized housing.
