Can you imagine the headlines in the Express and Mail about the effect on house prices?
From the BBC
A company in China has used giant 3D printers to make 10 full-sized, detached single-storey houses in a day, it appears.
The cheap materials used during the printing process and the lack of manual labour means that each house can be printed for under $5,000, the 3dprinterplans website says.
“We can print buildings to any digital design our customers bring us. It’s fast and cheap,” says WinSun chief executive Ma Yihe. He also hopes his printers can be used to build skyscrapers in the future. At the moment, however, Chinese construction regulations do not allow multi-storey 3D-printed houses, Xinhua says.
