How 3D Printing Will Change the Home Improvement Industry

Mar 23 • MIX, Renovation • 1104 Views • 74 Comments on How 3D Printing Will Change the Home Improvement Industry

We reached out to Modernize for a breakdown of how the home improvement industry will change due to 3D printing.


Ever since 3D printing was first developed in the 1980s, advancements have made this technology more affordable and accessible for everyday use. The potential uses for 3D printing technology are limitless—from medicine to automotives to electronics—and almost every industry and area of study can find a way to use this impressive technology to their advantage.


One area experiencing rapid changes, thanks to 3D printing, is the home improvement industry. Due to its accessibility and the amount of information and printing plans available through the open source community, just about anyone can find a way to use 3D printing to make changes to their home.


How 3D Printing Works
3D printing prints in layers, cutting images from plastic, one layer after another, to create 3D objects from a file on your computer. The plans for many 3D printing projects have been available through the open source community—meaning the software or file needed is freely distributed online to anyone interested in using it for personal reasons. Once you have found plans for the home improvement 3D printing project that works best for you, you can either print it on your home 3D printer or take advantage of a 3D printing service located in your area.


How Advancements in 3D Printing is Changing the Home Improvement Industry
Now, virtually anyone with basic computer skills and access to 3D printing equipment can use this technology to make changes, big or small, to their home. There are a few big advantages to using this method for making changes to your home instead of hiring a contractor or using the services provided at a home improvement store.


First, 3D printing plans available through the open source community can be modified. This means if you are struggling to find just the right plan or product for what you have in mind for your home, you actually tweak existing 3D printing plans to create your own unique home improvement plans.


Second, many 3D printing plans are free and can be printed fairly inexpensively. If you are choosing between hiring a contractor or handyman and trying your hand at the project yourself by printing the plans yourself, you are bound to save a lot of money. Sure, you still have to invest in the materials needed for printing but you won’t be paying the expensive labor costs that come with hiring a professional.


Lastly, the use of 3D printing is fairly low risk. Since the plans are available online, and printing the actual plans are fairly expensive, you can take a project step-by-step without committing to a complete remodel.

At Modernize, we love to empower homeowners to take ownership of creating a home that fits their personality and their hopes for more sustainable living. As 3D printing technology continues to evolve, it will play an increasingly important role in helping homeowners turn their home improvement dreams into reality.
