This 3D Printer, Capable Of Building A House In A Day, Could Change Construction Forever
Imagine being able to lease a 3D printer to build your entire house.
The technology, called Contour Crafting, is already here and can build a 2,500-square-foot home in 20 hours.
The massive robot printer was invented by University of Southern California professor Behrokh Khoshnevis, who says that the technology is so versatile that it can be used to build homes in slums or human habitats on Mars.
The technology is ideal for the world’s slums and areas destroyed by natural disasters, claims Khoshnevis, because the robot’s construction is cheaper, stronger, faster, safer and more eco-friendly than manual construction.
