Chinese firm 'prints' ten homes in a day

  • Comment

A Chinese firm has used giant 3D printers to make ten single-storey detached houses in a day

Materials research company WinSun used the four, 10m x 6.6m printers to spray a mixture of cement and construction waste to build walls layer by layer.

WinSun chief executive Ma Yihe official told the Xinhua news agency: ‘We can print buildings to any digital design our customers bring us. It’s fast and cheap,’

The firm’s website claims that each house could be printed for under $5,000.
