Currently, additive technology is becoming more and more popular in different areas, including its applications in construction industry. The main aim of the chapter is to show the selected applications of 3D printing technology in the construction industry and the usage of this technology on different stages of a construction project, from architectural design to performance of residential buildings and other civil engineering constructions. The chapter is based on a critical analysis of the literature sources, as well as the authors' experiences. The data collected are supported by selected case studies from five projects. The main findings show that 3D printing brings a lot of advantages in the construction industry, for instance: low labor costs, less waste, and high efficiency, but it still requires development and optimization.
