Using 3D Printing in construction is a very new concept, however it is already being employed by some companies in order to help with the design process of their projects. Using this 3D printing can allow you to create a miniature model of what you are trying to accomplish. This helps give your clients an overview of what they will be left with in the end and help make any changes to it if they aren’t happy. It gives a more detailed view of what you are building and saves a lot of misunderstanding between you, your workers and your clients as everyone will be in the know about what the end result should be.
In the future the construction industry could be looking at using 3D printing to create elements of the house and even a whole house structure. Technology isn’t that advanced yet and it is expected to be very expensive to do at first, but it is being worked on by experts, so companies might have to consider this technology in the future. This would have a whole range of advantages for some companies as it will allow for less costs on manual labour in the planning and building stages.
