In Brief

Chinese firm Winsun New Materials builds houses using industrial waste.

Winsun Decoration Design Engineering Co., a construction materials firm based in Suzhou, China, has built ten homes in a day using a giant 3D printer.

This isn’t the first time that a firm has used 3D-printing technology to build a house, but it seems to be the first time that a firm has done so in rapid fire time.

According to an article on The Wall Street Journal, the company spent 20 million yuan or $3.2 million and 12 years developing the 3D printer, which measures 6.6. meters tall, 10 meters wide, and 150 meters long. The printer uses ink made from a mixture of recycled construction and industrial waste and glass fibers.
