While I know that 3D printing is one of the top disruptive technologies, I’ve struggled to understand its practical applications outside of huge manufacturing companies.  Until…this!

3D printing is making its mark in the housing industry. Believe it or not, there are a few companies exploring building fully autonomous smart homes in a single day using 3D printers.  These homes are modular, off grid and run completely on solar energy.

This is a truly innovative use for 3D printing in a housing market that is cost prohibitive for many buyers.  Downsizing or choosing to live small is a viable choice for an increasing number of people and this technology allows for rapid production of modular housing at a much more reasonable price.
