3D Printed Houses in Florida
Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, is used as a technique to create living spaces all over the world. CyBe Construction has been using this solution for 10 years now, and lately, it has arrived in America too, with Florida being one of the first states in the US to embrace the 3D printing of houses. The technology is gaining popularity in the Sunshine State due to its ability to provide affordable, sustainable, and quickly-built homes. Florida’s first example of a 3D printed house became a reality in October 2022, in Tallahassee. The house was produced by partnering companies Precision Building & Renovating and Gulf Coast Additive Manufacturing. Our partner Jarett Gross, a field journalist who has gathered a large YouTube following by explaining and showing the latest developments in the 3D printing industry, created a video on the house when production was in its final stages. Three months later, we also entered Florida’s market with our new CyBe Construction Florida LLC. This new office has been a great success, as we are currently printing our first 3D concrete villa in Florida right now!

3D Printed Houses, Manufactured in Florida
Our office in Florida has allowed us to expand our business expenditures further into Florida and the US in general. Using our CyBe RC (Robot Crawler), we have been a prominent player in the on-site 3D concrete printing industry for numerous years now and plan on continuing to do so all around the world. Now that we can offer our services from our Florida LLC, the CyBe RC offers the possibility of distributing structures and buildings manufactured in Florida even more effectively in the US. This also means there are now 3D printed houses for sale in Florida, brought to you by CyBe. In addition to our CyBe RC, we also plan on bringing our new printer, called the CyBe Gantry Robot, to Florida in the future. This new printer is perfect for Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC). When we place this printer in Florida, we can manufacture modular, finished apartments in a factory setting, and bring the project together on-site afterward.

The Benefits of a 3D Printed House
One of the most significant advantages of a 3D printed house is that it is cheaper to construct than traditional houses. Since 3D printing technology eliminates the need for human labor and building materials, it can reduce costs by up to 50%. As a result, 3D printed houses are a much more affordable alternative to those made with the use of traditional construction.
Another significant benefit of a 3D printed house is that it is more energy-efficient than traditional houses. 3D printing technology allows for the use of advanced materials that offer better insulation, which helps to regulate temperature and reduce energy consumption. This not only lowers utility bills, but also reduces the carbon footprint of the building, making it a more environmentally friendly option.
Furthermore, 3D printing technology allows for greater customization and flexibility in the design of houses. The software allows for unique and intricate designs, which are impossible to realize with traditional construction methods. This makes 3D printed houses an attractive option for those looking for modern and innovative living spaces.
Finally, it is important to consider the unique geographical position of Florida, which renders it particularly vulnerable to natural disasters. With its exposure to hurricanes and the risk of earthquakes, the state faces constant challenges when it comes to ensuring the safety and resilience of its housing infrastructure. 3D concrete printing, however, can offer a solution to this problem. Learn how 3DCP can help you by visiting our pages on hurricane-proof houses with 3D concrete printing and earthquake-proof houses with 3D concrete printing.
The Cost of a 3D Printed House in Florida
As we have just seen, using 3D printing to construct your house in Florida can significantly cut costs. Not only is the production cheaper, but also the energy-efficient material allows for lower utility costs. A more in-depth analysis of how 3D printing saves costs compared to traditional construction can be found on our website.
But knowing that it is cheaper might not be enough. We would like to tell you exactly what amount of money you can save by choosing this innovative building technique. The cost of 3D printing a house, however, is not fixed and varies based on a number of factors, such as size, location, and customization options. To give you an indication of what your project would cost, you can use cost indication of the Robust Villa, which comes down to a total cost of $23,000. Note that prices for the material are highly variable and could be significantly cheaper if produced locally. So what does a 3D printed house in Florida cost? For the cost of 3D printed houses in Florida, we would like to refer you to our mailing series on 3DCP in the US. In the final mailing of this series, we will get into the direct and indirect costs associated with 3D concrete printing in the US, and the amount of money you can save by choosing this technique. You can subscribe for this mailing series by downloading our ‘3DCP in the US’ form.

- Are 3D printed houses cheaper?Though the price of a 3D printed house can vary significantly based on various factors, the short answer to this question is: Yes, 3D printed houses are cheaper. Using 3D printing technology as your building method can save costs in different domains, like labor hours, material usage, indirect costs, and certain steps from the traditional construction process that are omitted. 3D printed houses are, however, generally only cheaper when they are designed as a 3D printed house from the beginning. This way, you can make sure you enjoy optimal material usage and timelines.
- Are 3D printed houses safe?Yes, 3D printed houses are safe. Generally, they are safer than traditionally constructed homes. 3D printed houses meet and exceed virtually all building codes, and offer protection against natural disasters like hurricanes and earthquakes. They also offer improved fire-resistance. 3D printed houses offer the safety you and your family deserve.
- How strong are 3D printed houses?3D printed houses are exceptionally strong. Our 3D printed homes use our single-purpose CyBe Mortar, which is specifically developed for 3D concrete printing. This material is durable and offers outstanding structural strength. 3D printed houses printed with CyBe Mortar can even withstand earthquakes and hurricanes.
