Three-Dimensional Concrete Printing (3DCP) is expected to address many challenges facing concrete construction today and offer new design possibilities. 3DCP is an automated construction process that builds structures layer-by-layer from 3D modeling data. With the looming housing crisis, the construction industry needs to rethink how to build safe, affordable, and sustainable homes. 3DCP technology offers potential innovative solutions to increasing the supply to homes across the nation.
