The £3000 houses that can be downloaded and printed in 24 hours

  • This wasn't there the day before

New Story teamed with Texas-based ICON Technologies, to build a 3D printer specifically for the goal of constructing houses in developing countries.

The homes now cost £7,200 ($10,000) to construct and take up to 24 hours to build, but for the production version this cost should be reduced to around £2,900 ($4,000).

Once testing of the design has been completed, Icon will move the Vulcan printer to El Salvador to start building work on its new planned community.

The firm has teamed up with New Story, a nonprofit that invests in global housing, and plans to build around 100 new homes in El Salvador within the next 18 months.

Serena-Venus set up third-round clash
The No. 15 seed was mistake-prone throughout the second-round match, committing five unforced errors in the tiebreaker. Also moving into the third round was defending champion Elena Vesnina, who beat American Catherine Bellis 2-6 6-1 6-1.

The model unveiled at SXSW has a living room, bathroom, bedroom, and a curved porch. 3D printing is already revolutionizing the way products are created and will continue to do so in the future, according to experts. If all goes according to plan, we may soon see the Vulcan 3D printing homes in the United States as well.

New Story is seeking up to a million in funding: $400,000 in pre-funding the "first community of 100 printed homes", and $600,000 to cover the next phase of construction.

After construction, the charity will follow up with the community, using what they call "impact data", which measures the impact of a home on education, well-being, income and community building. "Linear methods will never reach the billion+ people who need safe homes", said Brett Hagler, CEO of New Story.

In response to soaring property prices in Australia (and other major cities around the world), a small but growing group of young people are joining the tiny house movement.

The process is created to minimise labour costs and waste materials. For this venture to succeed, they have to be the best houses...

"One of the big challenges is how are we going to create habitats in space", Ballard said.

"Conventional construction methods have many baked-in drawbacks and problems that we've taken for granted for so long that we forgot how to imagine any alternative", says Jason Ballard, co-founder of ICON. Through their proprietary 3D printing technology and cutting-edge materials, ICON provides sustainable solutions to a number of our world's most pressing issues, including the pandemic of homelessness in the developing world, the difficulty of constructing off-planet space habitats, and the exorbitant cost of customized housing.
