Developer 3Strands and construction technology company ICON
have built four 3D-printed houses
, Texas, from concrete that's designed to cope with extreme weather.
It took five to seven days to print each house. ICON claims that The Vulcan can print Lavacrete more accurately and at a higher speed than manual labour so that the houses are cost-effective and well-built.
Situated in the East Austin neighbourhood, each house has large North-facing windows with vaulted master bedrooms and open floor plans.
