Ten houses were built entirely out of recycled materials, in less than 24 hours: now it is possible! The Chinese company, called WinSun Decoration Design Engineering Co, has built the ten house in Shanghai’s Qingpu district by a very big 3D printer which measures 32-meters long, by 10-meters wide, by 6.6-meters high.
Each of the structural components of the houses were printed separately, then, like the traditional 3D printers, the system carefully spills out those materials layer by layer. Each unit covers an area of 200 sq m, and it is printed with special "ink" based on high-grade cement and glass fiber.
These building were created entirely out of concrete using a gigantic 3D printer. They are built with very little labor and they are incredibly inexpensive: each costs 30,000 RMB ($4,800).
The new technology represents a strong revolution of the way homes and other structures are built. Can we say 'goodbye to the mortar? Time will tell!
