Concrete 3D Printer Can Build Homes In Less Than One Day
Researchers at the University of Southern California are testing a giant 3D printer that could build an entire house in less than a day. Created by Professor Behrokh Khoshnevis, the technology known as “Contour Crafting,” could significantly reduce the cost of home-owning, and also be used in disaster relief areas to build emergency and replacement housing. While it debuted in 2006, the process is still being tested and there are no clear dates for when it would be fully-functional.
