In the future, the tendency is toward manufacturing housing based completely on 3D printing because it decreases labor costs, speeds the process of construction and reduces the number of accidents at a work site. Organization such as DOE, CERL are spending a lot for advanced manufacturing in research, education and outreach. Sustainable housing is environmentally friendly housing, in terms of everything from construction to the use of the building. The house needs to be air-tight and highly efficient. It must use renewable energy. Our work will illuminate designing walls in ways that make them mechanically strong and thermally efficient. It will also feature ideas about stress analysis and energy-related problems as heat transfer, moisture and condensation. With respect to housing, 3D printing creates the major parts that go into assembling a house, with blueprints showing all the 3D-printed parts and how to assemble them. Down the line, the scientific community must develop ways to check 3D-printed housing for condensation, mold and other aspects of “sick-building syndrome” that can endanger the health of humans. In addition, building, electrical, mechanical and fire codes must change to make 3D-printed housing more feasible. The objective of this paper is to describe the students’ benefits from introducing a methodology towards a sustainable, affordable 3D-printed house, with emphasis on heat transfer and thermal-stress analysis, into a DOE project, outreach program, and lesson learned. Most importantly, project methodology will be discussed. We discuss the project from students’ point of view, and the experience earned in design, integration, and also in written and oral communication skills. Methodology used to evaluate the effectiveness of this design program in term of learning outcomes is also described.
