Media New Atlas reported that 3D printing technology has gradually been used in the construction industry. The latest developments come from S-Squared 3D Printing (SQ3D), which has the latest technology to print basic prototypes in 3D in 12 hours. The unnamed 500-square-foot (46-square-meter) structure was built in the same way as the other 3D printing projects we’ve covered.
This process involves layering the cement mixture out of a nozzle to form a house shape, although the printer itself does make some improvements to the standard off-the-shelf model. In fact, in addition to construction work under the name SQ4D, SQ3D sells 3D printers for amateurs, prototyping and educational purposes.
“Our machine is a simple gantry Cartesian printer, but we have a patented feature that separates us from the packaging,” the company told New Atlas by email. We are using a rectangular rotating (tangent) nozzle to squeeze out the controlled band, as well as some other features we are trying. “The project was built outside SQ3D’s plant in Long Island, New York, and was carried out in several phases, not once, because the company wanted to test its equipment and technology. After the machine finished its work, the staff continued to decorate the roof and windows.
SQ3D added: “The openings have been printed and the planned downtime is for workers to insert windowsills and siding – it’s a two-minute job.” Once the plate is inserted and flattened, press. We intend to assist other customers in installing sanitary equipment, electricity and other utilities after printing. We can customize not only strength, but also the interior structure of the inner and exterior walls, as well as the location and manner of the installation of utilities; “
It is worth noting, for example, that the project is far less complete than the 3D Housing 05, but it is not. Instead, it’s best to think of it as a first step and remove it as soon as it’s done. SQ3D plans to build another larger, habitable house.
The company hopes to provide large-scale affordable housing in the future and is exploring the possibility of humanitarian housing, local housing, etc.
