3D printing concrete is an emerging technology in additional form-work during construction and also the human resource required is comparatively which structures are made only using concrete in layers with the help of Software. With this technology, even geometrically intricate structures, heavy load bearing structures and hydraulic structures can be made easily in no time with less wastage of materials and minimum costs. It does not require any less. It is a sustainable technology which can also be used for aesthetic purpose. 3D printing (3DP) is a promising new technology that has the potential to not only be an effective means of increasing project efficiency and profitability in the field, but also have positive environmental impacts. However, as it exists today, this technology is highly limited by size, material, skilled labor, and industry reluctance. The 3D printing technologies, comparing to traditional techniques of constructing the buildings, could be considered as environmental friendly derivative giving almost unlimited possibilities for geometric complexity realizations. This is a research paper on 3D printing and the various materials used in 3D printing and their properties which become a notable topic in technological aspect. Also, see the advantages of 3D printing as compared to additive manufacturing.
