The first permitted, 3D-printed home created specifically for the developing world created by New Story and ICON. However, by working alongside ICON, they now have access to the impressive Vulcan 3D printer. New Story has already built homes in Haiti, El Salvador and Bolivia, according to Fast Company. Their 100% model ensures that every penny of each donation goes to build homes while organization overhead and R&D is covered by private donors such as Y Combinator, prominent venture capitalists, and other leading executives.

The homes now cost £7,200 ($10,000) to construct and take up to 24 hours to build, but for the production version this cost should be reduced to around £2,900 ($4,000). "3D printing had been our on radar but it wasn't until we got connected to ICON that we felt it would be a feasible possibility". The current $6,500 homes are built to last for generations and each donation is paired directly with a family so donors can see their impact. ICON displayed how it could construct a 650-square-foot house out of cement in one day at the annual film and innovation festival known as SXSW.

The non-profit organization is now working with ICON, an Austin, Texas-based construction tech company.

The current plan is to build 100 homes in El Salvador next year. Eventually, ICON hopes to reduce this construction cost to just $4,000. The strength of the printed walls are said to be stronger than cinderblocks after a few days of hardening, but the house is entirely habitable after it's been set up. But they are printed in a warehouse, or they look like Yoda huts. Icon will also use the proof-of-concept house as its own office to get a better feel for how it performs. One of its founders, Jason Ballard, will be testing out the home by living in it.

Since these structures need to be sturdy and hospitable, the companies aren't taking any risks and will be refining the process right up until they take it over to El Salvador.

As we've seen in cases both inside and outside of the construction sector, 3D printing offers many benefits other than just being very quick.

Even though the machinery used in 3D-printing is quite costly, however, the materials can be low-priced.

3D-printing has become more accessible all around the globe, however, the of adoption of any large-scale utilization of 3D-printing technology is still a challenge.
