A 50 mph car crashes into a 3D printed building…what happens?

Earlier, we shared the news that a two-story building was built with a 3D printer at a fraction of the cost and time.

The biggest concern is safety.

They did a car crash test, but how did it turn out?

Reporter Hong Seong-wook.

“The biggest question from viewers was safety, so we did an experiment…”

A 3D printed house crash test conducted last year.

Some viewers noted that the strength of the impact seemed weak스포츠토토.

A two-story office that a company recently rebuilt in 20 days at a cost of 80 million won with a 3D printer.

A passenger car weighing over a ton crashes into the building at 50 kilometers per hour.

The car crashes with a loud bang, badly dented.

What about the wall?

This is the wall that the car crashed into. It didn’t crack as you can see, and the window right next to it didn’t break.

A crash test with an estimated impact of 20 tons.

The wall printed by the 3D printer withstood the impact well.

[Lee Sung-min/Vice President, Korea Construction Quality Institute : I think there is no doubt that we can withstand this kind of impact load in terms of structural performance].

Although we have the technology to build real houses, we are currently only able to build sculptures or small jjimjilbangs.

3D-printed houses cannot be occupied by humans because the laws are not in place.

In addition to crash tests, the company is preparing for commercialization by conducting experiments on various external environments such as earthquake resistance, insulation, and noise, and whether they are harmful to humans.

[Shin Dong-won / Representative of 3D printing construction company: I would like to distribute and build a lot of houses to not only young people, but also vulnerable people, such as the elderly who live alone, and make a lot of houses where they can live comfortably, stably, and happily].

3D printing architecture that greatly reduces cost and time,

If the safety is sufficiently confirmed and the relevant laws are prepared and commercialized, it is expected to greatly help solve the housing shortage.
