3D printing has come a long way from a hobbyist’s tool for printing small plastic objects to completing some very large and complex projects. We recently talked about a new kind of 3D printer that could print walls and potentially be used for structures. A Chinese company has taken this vision into a reality by printing 10 3D houses in a 24 hour period. Check out the video below to see how it was accomplished.
Although this new technology is exciting, it is still a long way from replacing traditional methods of building. The structures have a rough finish to them and don’t quite have the aesthetics and beauty found with other types of construction. Well keep you posted as this technology progresses.
