You may have noticed that people have been talking about 3D printing, but its applications are only now being realized. People have made food, deserts, printed organs, made rocket parts, and sculptures but what about buildings? Contour crafting is trying to make this a reality and showing its merits as a more efficient way of building homes and structures. It would cut down on workers and time it takes to construct a building by designing it in computer and going on site with a robot 3D printer and letting it rip. Future applications also include the Moon or Mars where the raw materials of the local surroundings can be used to construct a structure without having to transport pieces from Earth. NASA is already working with them and the Navy is getting in on the action as well.
Can’t wait to just buy land and 3D print my dream home.
