3D Printer Cranks out Ten Homes in One Day

April 24th, 2014 Comments off

A private Chinese company has built ten stand alone homes in 24 hours, using a huge 3Dprinter and construction waste mixed with cement, according to gizmag.com. Suzhou-based construction materials firm Winsun creates cement/glass panels in a central factory and ships them to the site for assembly. MHProNews.com has learned the print pattern leaves air gaps that act as insulation. Costing just under $5,000 for each home, Winsun envisions the homes as meeting the growing need for low income housing in China. ##
