Giant Chinese 3-D Printer Builds 10 Houses In Just One Day

Recommended Posts

A private company located in eastern China has printed ten full-size houses using a huge 3D printer in the space of a day. The process utilizes quick-drying cement, but the creators are being careful not to reveal the secrets of the technology.

China’s WinSun company, used a system of four 10 meter wide by 6.6 meter high printers with multi-directional sprays to create the houses. Cement and construction waste was used to build the walls layer-by-layer, state news agency Xinhua reported.

“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.

They have ""printed" two walls

Yes, distinctly underwhelming, but I imagine the tech will progress quite quickly.

didn't see the earlier thread, but if beach huts in Bournemouth are selling for a fortune, surely some entrepreneur can make a go of this in Blighty?

I would say off site prefabrication will still be far more efficient ,i could see the advantage of 3D printing if you were building on a pool table like the ground in the above pictures but when dose that ever happen

Set up a few of those to run automatic and whole swathes of London's green belt could be covered before anyone noticed. Instant "pop" to the London mega bubble.
