The US Army used 3D printers to build barracks, and built 46 square meters of buildings in 40 hours.

According to the Spanish newspaper's website on September 16, 3D printers are increasingly available in many places. Besides printing metal parts in the industrial and automotive industries, 3D printers can also be used to build houses.

Reported that the U.S. military thought of this, and in practice proved that industrial-grade 3D printers can be faster than manpower to build safe barracks.

The US Army used 3D printers to build barracks, and built 46 square meters of buildings in 40 hours.

For example, 3D printers can build a complete barracks within two days. The barracks, about 46 square meters in size and less than 40 hours in construction, were jointly completed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers R&D Center and the Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC). Generally speaking, the construction of barracks of the same size requires about 10 naval land.

So the 3D printing equipment saves a lot of manpower, and technology has changed the military's building model, which can reduce manpower even more. It's very good.

"In real and simulated warfare, we don't want Marines to wield hammers and hold plywood," explains MCSC Commander Matthew Friedel. This technology is used not only in the military field, but also in humanitarian aid, where there are disasters, where there are no houses to live in, these methods can be used to make it faster.

Making a house helps to resettlement households faster.
