$4000 3D Printed Homes for Those Who Lack Shelter

ICON also has plans to use this technology to build homes in the United States as well. The charity's mission is to place people without adequate housing into a proper shelter, taking them away from the throes of "survival mode".

A Texas-based company is using 3D printing technology to find a solution to the growing problem of affordable housing around the world. They've found a way to 3D-print 600 to 800-square-foot houses for $4,000 in under one day - and they recently unveiled "the first permitted, 3D-printed home in America".

The 3D Vulcan printer which was used in making the house is reported to be massive, but still portable. One of its founders, Jason Ballard, will be testing out the home by living in it.

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.

"(ICON) believes, as do I, that 3D printing is going to be a method for all kinds of housing", New Story co-founder Alexandria Lafci said. ICON also intends to build homes in the US. The company also plans to build homes in the USA eventually.
