3D Printing In Public Housing

Singapore Looks to 3D Printing for Ambitious Public Housing Project

Kelly Hodgkins | Febraruy 15, 2016

Singapore has an increasing need for public housing and is turning to 3D printing as a possible solution to their problem, reports 3D Printing Industry. At the heart of the problem is a shortage of supplies and slow build times because of the country’s reliance on foreign labor in its construction projects. By using 3D printing, the island nation hopes to be able to complete construction more rapidly and efficiently using local resources and a native workforce.
With $107.7 million in government and industry funding, the Singapore Centre for 3D Printing is heading up the effort to use 3D printing for the country’s public construction projects.
