Abstract: 3D printing (3DP), commonly known as additive manufacturing (AM), is a promising technology that can fabricate three dimensional complex shape prototypes directly from computer-aided design (CAD) model without any tooling and human intervention. Owing to its peculiar characteristics, AM is widely used in many industries to assist in the design, manufacture and commercialization of a product. More recently, this technology has been extended to building and construction (B&C) application in order to mitigate some of the critical issues such as shortage of skilled labour, high production cost and construction time, health and safety concerns of the workers in the hazardous environment etc. However for successful implementation, proper selection of materials and their mix design is highly recommended, which is a challenging task. This paper summarizes the current available 3DP systems from literature and the respective materials that have been used thus far by various experts, industries for B&C purposes. Finally, the benchmarking properties of theses material and potential research directions are briefly discussed.
