The article provides an analysis of current approaches to 3D printing of buildings. It focuses on three key areas: 1) computer-aided design methods for 3D printing of buildings; 2) manufacturing methods and materials used; 3) methods for evaluating their effectiveness. The section "Design/Development" covers tools and techniques used from the design stage to the production of building elements. The Technology and Materials section looks at opportunities for engineering applications, categorized by material type. The Performance Evaluation section highlights current strategies for analyzing 3DP buildings. In the first part of this analysis (i.e., this article), the author discusses in detail the general concept of the study, focusing on its key aspects.
