3D Printed Building

3D printed buildings are buildings constructed using 3D printing technology. 3D printing is a process by which an object is ‘printed’ layer by layer, under computer control based on a given blueprint. India’s first 3D printed building with reinforcement was constructed by L&T Constructions. This G+1 or ground plus one building was constructed using 3D concrete printing. It made use of specially developed concrete mix composed of indigenously available construction materials. This technology would help speed up the construction pace and improve the quality of the buildings.
