Abstract
The purpose with this thesis is to give the reader a holistic view of the 3D-print technology and how it can come to use in the construction industry. The purpose is also to spread knowledge about the technology. During the evaluation of the technology examines four aspects that an innovation needs to establish on the market, the aspects are: geographical resources, economical, law and social impact.
The report has mostly been written in Lund, Sweden. Participation was also at an event in Stockholm called 3DP Build with focus on the use of 3D printing in construction where most of the interviews were held. Other interviews were made in Skåne except one that were in Amsterdam, Netherlands. All of the interviewed candidates are one of the... (More)

The report has mostly been written in Lund, Sweden. Participation was also at an event in Stockholm called 3DP Build with focus on the use of 3D printing in construction where most of the interviews were held. Other interviews were made in Skåne except one that were in Amsterdam, Netherlands. All of the interviewed candidates are one of the most skilled people within the subject.
In the result you can see need of the technology in the industry. It fulfils a purpose and can be combined with traditional building methods, and even in some cases replace them. The positive aspects with use of the innovation in construction is; less use of material, economical profits and the architectural flexibility. What could holdback the innovation from penetrate the Swedish market is the process to get products certified and certified quality-checks.
The technology still needs to develop further before commercial use. Also there’s lack of reference projects. Referring to a successful project helps the establishment of the innovation. Furthermore, the thesis is giving suggestions of how to penetrate the market, based on the quality the technology and what the market demands. Which includes 3D-printed building components, spare components, tools, details and project models that increase the visual understanding in the design process. It’s also important that material-research keeps up with the paste since it puts the foundation of the technology.
This report does not cover the mechanical and technical aspect, neither material properties nor copywriting issues. These are all interesting areas that we’d like to see further research in.
Keywords: Innovation, 3D printing, additive manufacturing, components, Construction industry, architecture and freeform design. (Less)
