3D printer builds houses in China - video


A Chinese construction company is building houses that can be mass-produced using a 3D printer. Using a mixture of cement and construction waste, the houses can be produced for under $5,000 (£2,970). The walls and structure of the house are printed layer by layer using a process that allows up to 10 complete houses to be printed in one day

I'd like to live in a world where everyone had somewhere to like. It would be nice not to have to worry about homelessness.

With 3D printing of houses, I think all sorts of things may be possible, using different material.
You could build quite complex designs, maybe with stronger material. Maybe even skyscrapers.

I could imagine they could come up with a printing material as strong as steel, or even diamond...you could even print in a honeycomb to make it light.
You could have houses that could last thousands of years, and not need major maintenance.
