Right after the fascination on what a 3D printed house actually is sets in, one of the first questions we’re asked is, “ok, but are 3D printed homes safe?”
3D printed homes are similar to traditionally built concrete houses in a variety of ways. Concrete is completely sound and has been used in architecture for centuries. It is still an excellent building material today for many modern structures. In fact, concrete walls are safer than many other common building materials!
It’s important to remember that 3D printed houses need to meet local state laws and regulations. In other words, these homes are required to be up to code in order to live in, like any other home. Safety is always the top priority.
Let’s familiarize you with how these houses are built. You’ll feel a lot more confident once you understand how it’s structurally sound.
