1. a. What is the job exactly?
In fact，housing 3D printing engineer is a kind of job which has responsibility for designing，researching and developing a 3D printing product（house）. The people who will be in this job need to design the product by making a 3D model. At the same time, they will need to make a design sketch，including structure and exterior, in a software and do some experiment. Check printing the product finally.
In general, housing 3D printing engineer has work that structural engineer and architect have to do.Whereas it is much,much easier than them.
b. What tasks will need to be done on a daily/weekly/monthly/yearly basis?
A housing 3D printing engineer will have two choice. To join in a organization(company) or to take project by yourself. If you begin to tackle a project, this job will take a week to come up with an idea. It take 1~3 months to design. Preparing the materials for around 3 months. So a housing 3D printing engineer will has done 2~3 project a year basis.
2. Where will this job be? Worldwide? Major cities? Small towns?
This job will exist in worldwide especially some poor area. In another way , the poor area will be regarded as the mean area which need 3D printing. As 3D printing can print a house in less than a day，it is used widely in building and rebuilding a poor area.”I t can be used to eliminate slums, help rebuild areas after a natural disasters .” Therefore this job will exist mostly in poor area and area after a natural disaster.
3. How many people will need to do this job? (estimate if you don’t know)
This technology is convenient so one person can instead of many person in traditional architecture.
After comparing with relevant career, I estimate the amount of housing 3D printing engineer is higher than 50000 in next 50 years.
4. What skills will you need to have this job?
computer skills: 3Dmax， maya+zbrush，modbox，autocad，adobe, illustrator，photoshop and so on.
creativity: A creative mind can help you to come up with lots of good ideas.
technical&professor knowledge: Leaning more about these useful knowledge can make you do this job fluently.
5. What education will you need?
While in high school, we should plan a strong college preparatory program with courses in English, History, and other humanities subjects, mathematics （ geometry, trigonometry, algebra and pre-calculus ) , physics and some art course . “ Humanities courses will sharpen your communication skills and your ability to put things into context. ”
“ Science and math courses help develop problem-solving techniques. ”
“ Art courses - drawing, painting, sculpture, or photography - will be helpful in developing your ability to visualize and conceptualize, which are both important skills to an architect. Drafting is less important than being able to communicate ideas through visuals. ”
Elective courses in computer s will develop your skills in 3D design.
“ Architectural drafting is the technique foundation course of civil engineering (building construction)and building construction is the professional course of civil engineering(building construction). ”
While in college，this job need following course：
a. Building Architecture
b. computer-aided design
c. structural engineering
d. art course
6. How much will the salary or wage be in Canadian dollars? (be honest!)
After searching and comparing,I found the salary of this job is between $ 6000-8300. Is equal to C$ 8259.6~11425.78
‘ The average salary for 3d printing engineer jobs is $71,000. Average 3d printing engineer salaries can vary greatly due to company, location, industry, experience and benefits. ”
“ The typical 3d-Printing Solutions Service Engineer salary is $61,713, which is 28% below the national average. Service Engineer salaries at 3d-Printing Solutions can range from $59,298 - $64,128. This estimate is based upon 1 3d-Printing Solutions Service Engineer salary reports provided by employees. ”
7. What role does your job have in society? (how does it connect with various types and groups of people)
The people who work in this job provided 3D printing house for the people and local government.
They make a good influence to environment because this technology can produce less waste than traditional houses. They make contribution to sustainable development.
8. How does it promote or align with sustainability?
Overall, this job has a good sustainability as it can be used to eliminate slums, help rebuild areas after a natural disasters . Nowadays, there still are some poor people who don’t have enough money to built or buy a house in some undeveloped area. These people occupy the main street of a city and live in there without a house. The government alway has no method to them. 3D printing can make a house in less than a day. It saves lots of time to solve these problem. It is such a good way that can be used even in the future. It promote with sustainable well. It is green to the environment.
9. Why do you think this will be a job in the future? Why is it important to you?
3D printing house is a dream and future of all architect and structural engineer. If we can promote 3D printing house technology, there will be less construction waste and other waste in the city. That protect the environment effectively. It is the biggest value of this technology.3D printing houses also has less use of manpower and material resources than traditional houses. Another reason of this job is important is 3D printing saves lots of time. It takes less time to finish more things.
3D printing house has strong function such as keep warm and durable. It will be a good job in the future. It is important to everyone.
