To remedy the housing crisis, as well as the increasing demand for economical and sustainably-produced living spaces, many architects are experimenting with 3D printing.

One such designer is Ma Yihe, the owner of the private firm WinSun. According to BBC News, WinSun managed to produce 10 full-sized, detached single-story houses in just ONE day – a monumental achievement.

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

The energy efficient buildings, as reported by Xinhua news agency, can be produced for as little as $5,000 due to the lack of manual labor and cheap (as well as recycled) materials…

According to the news source, the 3D printers aren’t yet versatile enough to manage the task of applying roofs, so that aspect must be carried out be a team of workers…

3D printed housing – according to some – is the kind of technology destined to fuel the advancement of mankind in a sustainable way. Already, the method is being used for manufacturing everything from jewelry and furniture to living, printed gardens (via TrueActivist). Check out the video below to see how they’re made…

    Nick Thompson : I didn’t say I would win< I said it would be interesting. How many people does it need to run it and keep it filled with concrete and fininsh the window/doors?

    24 hours… 10 houses. You would need dozens of people to make it happen, dozens of people who need to be paid. More people than using the machine.

    Nick Thompson So you’ve seen the machine operate or are you assuming?

Sarayah Rogers what do you know about this product? Is it available?

    To my knowledge these are still in the prototyping phase and not commercially available in the US. But there is a Texas based company working to raise the funds to build 100 homes in El Salvador by mid 2019. If they succeed that should show proof if concept and help with permitting.

    Sarayah Rogers thanks! We have an 80 acre ranch and would like to put up some guest houses.

    Kate Dougherty that would be an awesome way to do it!!

I doubt it can build a house to building code. Think about it when the first storm hits, and you pray your shelter doesn’t turn to dust in the wind!
