A company from China is quietly building 3D-PRINTED houses and even an APARTMENT BUILDING, and the project started last year.
The company named WinSun claims to have printed walls and supplies to build 10 houses a day, and now, it’s taking center stage after displaying its 6-floor apartment building made using 3D printers.
The 3D printer used for this purpose is about 6.6 meters high, 40 meters long and 10 meters wide, it fabricates parts in large pieces which are then assembled on-site. Steel reinforcements are later added along with insulation to bring the structure up to code.
Not only does this method of building structures significantly reduce labor costs it also decreases production time and construction waste.
The idea itself isn’t bad at all even if it is a bit heavy on the pocket. It is expensive though, the villa alone cost around $160,000.
