The widespread adoption of 3D-printed construction seems more a case of when rather than if, and so far we've seen houses, a castle, and even a military barracks created using the promising tech. The latest notable development comes from S-Squared 3D Printers (SQ3D), which 3D-printed a basic prototype home in an estimated 12 hours.
The project was constructed outside SQ3D's facility in Long Island, New York, and was carried out in a few stages, rather than all at once, as the firm wanted to test its equipment and technique. Once the machinery had done its work, human laborers then finished off the roof and windows, as was the case with all the other 3D-printed houses we've covered.
It's worth pointing out that this project is nowhere near as fully featured as 3D Housing 05, for example, but nor was it meant to be. Instead it's best considered as a first step and was demolished soon after completion. SQ3D next plans to build another, larger house that will be suitable for occupation.
