France: First 3D-Printed Home Unveiled in Nantes

Paris (April 13, 2018): Scientists, in the French city of Nantes have made the world’s first 3D-printed home.

The Independent website has published the report that, the five-room, 95-square-metre property will house a local family qualifying for social assistance from June.Benoit Furet, a University of Nantes professor who worked on the year-long project said, “It s a solution and a constructive principle that is interesting because we create the house directly on site and, in addition, we are able to create walls with complex shapes.”

While this is not the first building to have been created using printing technology, those behind the scheme, including academics, engineers and manufacturers say it will be the first to be permanently habituated.They added that, if scaled up, the process could be used to build energy efficient homes quicker and cheaper than current techniques allow.

Nantes Métropole, the city authority, says it is now launching a feasibility study into the possibility of printing out a complete suburban housing estate with homes in different shapes and sizes, as well as a 350-square-metre public reception centre.
