Currently, it costs $10,000 to 3D print a home with the Vulcan 3D printer.
According to the report, ICON is focused on bringing affordable housing to the estimated 1.2 billion people around the world who do not have adequate shelter.
There are countless people across the globe without adequate housing and despite all of the efforts being made by governments and non-profits, there's still a long way to go before housing can be secured for those in dire need of it. ICON, a startup based in Austin, demonstrated a low-priced 3D-printed home that's being presented as a potential solution to this global problem.
ICON has developed a method for 3D-printing of a single-story 650-square-foot house out of cement in just 12 to 24 hours. The partners plan to build a community of affordable 100 3D-printed homes in El Salvador next year. On the outside, the 3D-printed house looks like common buildings there're a unique covered patio and spacious windows. New Story said "as long or longer than standard Concrete Masonry Unit built homes". Some $ 4,000 costs a ready-made houses from Vulcan's hands. "It's one of the more promising potential habitat technologies".
SBI reduces charges for non-maintenance of AMB

New Story utilizes locally sourced materials for dwellings today, and they plan to do the same with 3D-printed houses, which will be comprised of a mortar. For this venture to succeed, they have to be the best houses...
After solving the vast housing and homelessness problems that plague the Earth, Ballard hopes to use 3D printing to help humans build homes in outer space. The company claims that "It's much cheaper than the typical American home".
