Print buildings :
Print buildings: The ancients sometimes used to build their own homes even if they were not architects or professional builders, the topic requires learning some techniques that enabled them to participate in building their house and feel a greater sense of return towards their newborn.
3D printed buildings offer solutions to many problems,
The large youth population in the Gulf states is pressuring the construction sector, which needs to provide decent housing, at reasonable prices and in a limited time. As local governments seek solutions to housing crises, triple printing technology can help.
The most important problems that will be solved by printing housing in three-dimensional technology include: –
Reduced time: House printing takes less time to build, and media reports indicate that it is possible to print a 3D home within a third of the period necessary to build an integrated building.
3D printing does not require a large number of workers: the work can be accomplished with 20 percent of the workers required to build a regular building.
60 percent of the materials used in regular buildings can be saved: This means that the cost of construction will be lower.
Solutions to environmental problems: While this process contributes to the reduction of construction wastes by rates ranging between 30 and 60 percent, it can also use materials that are recycled, which means that this process contributes to preserving the environment, and limits the negative effects of construction using automated equipment that works on environmentally harmful fuels. .
3D printing is an easy, low-cost and efficient way to manufacture things, especially building construction by pre-designing it with a specialized program, before prototypes are loaded onto a printer to be built.
This technology will not only be used for advancing architecture, as 3D printing speed and its low cost contribute to solutions to social problems by helping to develop affordable housing for everyone and building new homes for war-torn societies.
The focus in the construction sector will be on lighting products, bases and foundations, building joints, facilities and parks, humanitarian cases buildings and mobile buildings in addition to exhibitions, stores and residential villas where the value of the construction and printed sector with 3D printing technology is expected to reach billions.
Printed buildings are distinguished by many characteristics that can make them a revolutionary solution in the field of printed buildings, and these characteristics include high flexibility in configuration and customization, great speed in printing the building, and its ability to work fully automatically, as well as construction on-site, aiming to revolutionize Rapid construction of affordable housing.
Modern technology and the advancement of science helped to explore new areas of modern building materials and unprecedented building methods, even if some of them were conceptual design that did not materialize on the ground, but it opens different horizons for thinking about the future of architecture, from buildings printed with 3D technology to houses built of bricks. “Mushrooms” and others, we see in these modern methods a path that may change the shape of the world.
The value of the 3D printing technology market worldwide is expected to be about $ 120 billion by 2020, and about $ 300 billion by 2025, thanks to an increase in research and product development activities, and an increased need for more innovation in the design process. Three-dimensional printing will also facilitate production and manufacturing operations in various sectors, ensuring the way for a quantum leap in the world of industry.
Our architectural office (Ibrahim Goharji Architects), is one of the largest architectural offices in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the application of the subject of printed buildings (three-dimensional), but our architectural office is concerned with technological and modern developments in the field of architecture in general and the subject of printed buildings in particular where the staff of our architectural office works with every effort In modern architectural programs that work to facilitate and complete works in the shortest possible time and with very high efficiency.
