3D printed HOUSES?!? Yep, that was my reaction too when I first read about them. Before that, I had heard of 3D printed chess pieces, Pokemon buttons, Daleks, etc., as well as 3D printed knees and elbows, but not entire houses. Until week before last when a friend sent me this article about a 3D printed house in China. Once I started looking around on the internet, I found several other articles about 3D printed houses and other buildings, such as this one, this one, and this one. And here is website devoted to 3D printing that has an entire section dedicated to 3D printed houses. So check it out – whether you would actually want to live in one or not, you have to admit it’s a pretty cool concept.
