Has the 3D printing revolution finally arrived? | The Guardian

Must Read

A project to build 46 net-zero-carbon homes using 3D-extruded concrete in Accrington is set to be the largest printed building complex in Europe and has been made possible by recent developments in load-bearing printable concrete that performs well but is also cost-effective. 

The Nori bricks, which are renowned for being the hardest bricks ever made, were created in Accrington and fired for the first time in 1887. They have subsequently been used to build numerous new structures all over the world. On Charter Street, 46 net-zero-carbon homes will be built using 3D-extruded concrete, a new building material that is about to draw attention to the town. When finished, possibly in late 2023, the project will be the largest printed building complex in Europe. Although 3D printing at home has not gained much traction, it has been widely adopted in other fields, including dentistry, hearing aids, and even shoes. By 2026, the 3D printing market is anticipated to triple in size, with the construction industry as one of the key growth sectors.
