There’s a lot you can do with a 3D printer. Now add “building a house in a day” to the list.
Make that 10 houses.
The WinSun Decoration Design Engineering Co. has printed 10 homes in 24 hours out of recycled materials.
This isn’t the first attempt at 3D printing large structures in a short amount of time. Researchers in California are making a printer that can build a house in 24 hours.
In Amsterdam earlier this month, construction of a 3D-printed house began. The house is made out of plastic bricks that fit together like Lego. It’s also being printed onsite.
The Chinese houses, on the other hand, weren’t built onsite. They were printed in pieces and then put together in Shanghai’s Qingpu district.
