At one time or another, everyone is interested in doing some type of home remodeling or renovation project and sometimes those remodels take on a life of their own. Perhaps you’ve installed new kitchen cabinets and they just don’t look the way that you thought they would when the architect showed you the blueprints. Perhaps you’ve done a full remodel of your bathroom and that new Jacuzzi tub is taking up way too much floor space. Wouldn’t it be great if there was something that would allow you to see what you’re getting into before you fork out the money? Guess what? There is!
3D Printing isn’t just for government and big business anymore. With 3D printers decreasing in cost, they’re becoming more and more accessible to the average homeowner and it makes perfect sense to take advantage of the technology.
So what can you use 3D printing for?
Imagine this, you’ve finally decided to bring that outdated kitchen into the 21st century. In the past, you could have used any number of software programs to design your new kitchen and even-see it on-screen in a 3D format. You could have possibly hired an architect to create a costly hand-built model. What could be better than either of those, right? How about being able to hold an exact replica of what your new kitchen would look like right in your very own hands? A perfect 3D footprint of your entire space will be at your fingertips – literally! Forget trying to decipher those confusing blueprints. Instead, a tangible scale model will serve as a crystal ball and offer you a look into your future space.
Why wouldn’t you want to use this exciting technology? From a kitchen renovation to a full basement redo, the possibilities for this technology are endless. And, the benefits are even greater! Let’s face it! If you spend $50,000 to modernize your kitchen, you certainly want it to be exactly what you’ve been dreaming of.
3D printing will allow you to take the guesswork out of home renovation and save you a great deal of money in the long run. From the outside of your house to each room within, 3D printing is a great asset to homeowners.
Currently, 3D printing is primarily used for prototypes, but that is changing quickly. Think about the possibilities for home renovation. Even if you’re doing a small renovation, such as changing the knobs on your kitchen cabinets – forget buying them! Eventually you’ll be able to download a CAD drawing of your objects and print them – then use them!
Home renovation is quickly moving from a paper world to a dimensional one! When planning your next home renovation, especially if it’s an expensive one, be sure to consider 3D printing to avoid the extra time, money and delays usually present in all remodels. 3D printing can definitely help shape your world!
