California will soon be home to the world's first 3D-printed housing community

17. 3. 2021 | Business Insider | www.businessinsider.com

Forget concrete and steel — Mighty Buildings is using robots and 3D printers to build a $15 million community of homes in California.

Mighty Buildings, a construction tech company, specializes in 3D printed homes of varying sizes, presenting a technology-forward solution that could address issues like the housing crisis and sustainability. The California-based business isn't the first or only company taking advantage of this growing 3D printing tech. But unlike other companies, Mighty Building's upcoming project in Rancho Mirage, California will have the title of "world's first planned community of 3D printed homes," according to its maker.

Through this system, gone are the days of concrete. Instead, the homes will be based on Mighty Building's 3D printed proprietary Light Stone Material, which sets its shape upon UV light exposure, according to the company. Using this construction method has several sustainability, speed, and cost advantages. Similar to the general prefabricated home industry, Mighty Building's 3D printing process allows the homebuilders to create units in a quicker and 40% less expensive manner, all while reducing construction waste by 99%, according to Ruben. Along with this eco-friendly trend, the homes will be "zero-net-energy," relying on solar and optional Tesla Powerwall batteries for power. Electric vehicle chargers also come optional.
