Shanghai Company 3-D Prints Village

The potential of 3-D printing is kind of incredible. A Shanghai company constructed a village of humble concrete homes from 3-D printing. It wasn’t completely 3-D printing per se in that there were still some parts that had to be pieced together by manual labor.

Regardless, imagine how facilities could be constructed in the future through 3-D printing. Instead of months upon months of construction, one could potentially just bring 3D-printers on to a site and build. There’d be a reduced cost in time and money spent. More energy and resources can be pulled toward strategies and planning of facilities.
