The first 3 D printed house in India has been built on the IIT Madras campus. The 3 D printing technology helps build houses in considerably lesser time using extremely affordable budget. Besides, it is environment friendly compared to other popular methods of constructions. A special type of cement has been used to construct this house. The 3 D printing device makes the various parts of the house using the building materials that are filled in it. These parts are printed as per the designs that are already saved in the computer. The concrete printing technology that has been entirely developed in India was used to construct this house.
The house was built by a startup company called Tvasta Manufacturing Solutions. The company claims that the house was built on low budget using environmental friendly materials. The construction was completed in association with Habitat for Humanity. It cost between Rs 800 – 1200 per square feet to build this sample house.
Interestingly, a comfortable abode of 600 sqft could be easily built in just ten days using this technology. Experts say that the 3 D printing technology could surely bring a revolutionary change in the construction industry. The event was inaugurated by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitaraman.
