Infographics – Can 3D printing solve the global housing crisis?

The UN estimates that by 2025, 1.6 billion people will require adequate and affordable housing. 3D printing technology – or additive manufacturing, as it is often referred to – will revolutionise the way homes are built in the future. Homes will be printed in a matter of hours or days, dramatically reducing costs. Villas and buildings will be built with a robotic arm attached to a 3D printer head. Foundations will be laid remotely. Soil and local and environmentally friendly materials will be used to create bricks.
Though it might seem unlikely today, 3D printed homes could become common-place in the future. What do you think?
