This startup builds 3D printed houses in less than 24 hours: this is how it does it

Icon is an American startup that develops 3D printing technology, and can build small-sized homes in less than a day and at really low cost.

Evan Loomis, the company’s confessor, explains to Business Insider that calculating an exact cost is complicated, but that they have manufactured a 40-square-meter house for approximately $ 10,000.

It is not the first company to develop 3D technology for real estate construction, but its custom designs and the ability to build at high speed can revolutionize the low-cost housing market in the United States.

The company’s latest 3D printer, known as Vulcan II, is now on sale.

Cielo Property Group, a company based in Austin (Texas, USA), is using this printer to build homes where homeless people can live. New Story, a non-profit organization that helps families in need in developing countries, is manufacturing 50 homes in Latin America thanks to this technology.
