Print A House(fast & affordable homes for all)

While the 3D printing services offered by Philips incubated Shapeways are helping to usher in the coming boom, they produce small objects that fit in one’s hand. Using concrete instead of plastic, Contour Crafting aims to build a house in 24 hours at 1/5th the cost. The worlds largest construction equipment manufacturer, Caterpillar has invested in the technology which comes out of research at USC I’ve been following for some years. You can see the current state of Contour Crafting for yourself


more videos and media coverage are available on the Contour Crafting media page. And yes, as long-time MJ readers and true funkateers surely know, this is filed under TVIR 🙂
