Movoto designs a calculator that automatically tabulates construction times.

Real estate blog Movoto have designed a calculator that can determine how long it would take to construct a 3D-printed house.

3D2

The calculations are based on a Makerbot Replicator 2 printer and the system considers the square footage and number of levels in a home. For example, it would take over 220 years to 3D-print a two-story home using today’s technology and cost $332,820 in plastic.

There are however further theories into 3D-printing time scales for homes. Earlier this year Dutch Architect Janjaap Ruijssenaars claimed he could 3D print a house in 18 months and Behrokh Khoshnevis, a professor at the University of Southern California believes it’s possible to 3D print a 2,500-square-foot house in about 20 hours.

It seems we’ll have to wait and see who pips it to the post. In the mean time, calculate your 3D-printed dream home here.
