3D Printer Builds 10 Houses in 1Day

Video from rt.com

We all know that 3D pringting is mostly used in movie custom or model making so far. What if it can be print a real house? Few month ago, RT.com reported that a giant chinese 3D printer can build 10 houses in 1 day. According the news from china, the printing materials are not the traditional reinforced concrete, they are renewable environmental-friendly material, which means if the houses were broken down, the material they concrete could be reused to build another house.

“To obtain natural stone, we have to employ miners, dig up blocks of stone and saw them into pieces. This badly damages the environment,” stated Ma Yihe, the inventor of the printers. Yihe has been designing 3D printers for 12 years and believes his process to be both environmentally friendly and cost-effective.

“But with the 3D printing, we recycle mine tailings into usable materials. And we can print buildings with any digital design our customers bring us. It's fast and cheap,” Yihe said.

If the 3D printing technology can be used in real house building, it will bring an revolution for the architecture industry. First, building a house won't last for one or longer years, maybe several days the house can be built. Second, Using this technology means that construction workers can be saved from exposure to hazardous or dusty working environments. Third, this technology saves time and labor, which means it can cause the unemployment issue for buiding workers. 

While what we see these houses are standalone, one-storey structures, 3D printing technology will eventually be used to make skyscrapers, we hope so!
