We’ve seen 3D printed building materials before and it still continues to impact architecture due to its great quality, durability and affordability. But now Zachary Schoch (with support from Eugene Lee) has developed a unique 3D printed snap-together architecture that stack over one another to form a building structure, just like Lego bricks. The modular pieces of the building are printed on a Euclid robot 3D printer using ABS filament.
It took less than 18 hours to print these building blocks. These components are built from such high performance material and can be created by hand. However, larger elements require only minimal equipment for construction. These 3D printed pieces can snap together to form a complete building structure in just a few minutes.
Such modular units can be easily assembled/ disassembled to form your desired house design with ease. As these units can be detached (when not in use), so the building blocks can be easily transported via car or small truck to any location. This latest 3D printing technique has opened new doors for construction of futuristic prefabricated homes without much hassle.
