What is a 3D-printed house?
The answer is, quite literally, in the name. 3D-printed houses are created using very large 3D printers that, unlike smaller hobbyists or other types of industrial units, are able to extrude concrete, plastic, or other building materials through nozzles, in order to gradually build up a 3D object the size of a house.
These printers, specifically their nozzles, are able to move in multiple planes and are specifically designed to be very robust and hardy, as they generally need to operate outdoors on variable terrain.

- A New York homebuilder has put a 3D-printed home on the market for the first time in the United States, and he is getting a lot of offers.
- The new home will be 1,500 square feet, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a garage. It is listed at just under $299,000. That’s about half the price of a comparable newly built home in the area.
The home building industry is on the edge of a revolution.
