Chinese company uses 3D printing to build ten houses in one day
3D printing is fast changing the way we manufacture objects, from tools and toys, to clothing, and even body parts. Recently, giant 3D printers in China were able to produce ten houses in just one day, and at a cost of less than US$5,000 per house, proving just how time and cost efficient 3D printing has become.
The houses were built in Shanghai using four giant 3D printers, each 10 meters (33 feet) wide and 6.6 meters (22 feet) high. They produce a mixture of cement and construction waste to construct the walls layer by layer and quickly but surely, the houses took shape.
