Minnesotan contractor Andrey Rudenko is now the king of his castle; his 3D-printed concrete castle, that is. After completing a journey that took more than two years, Rudenko developed a customized 3D printer to extrude concrete and build a castle that he had designed himself. The entire structure is approximately 3 meters by 5 meters, which really makes it an amazing backyard fort rather than an actual livable structure.
Now that Rudenko has proven that aesthetically-pleasing customized structures can be created with 3D printers, he’s hoping to scale up operations and create an actual livable medium-sized home. Rather than just create the walls for the building, he would be able to program his printer to create the frame for the staircase, leave spaces for plumbing and electrical wires, as well as decorative elements.

I'm curious to see how 3d printing will change the medical industry. Form fitting plastic casts and whatnot.
