I'm curious if this can be applied to highway construction. It would be nice for freeways undergoing those 10+ year construction projects that cause traffic nightmares.

Now just fill it with 3d printed supercomputer parts like tiny nanobots, and create the first supercomputing building made of supercomputing nanobots FTW!

This is absolutely amazing. There is a lot of room for improvement, but this is just the early stages of this development, but as technology advances this could very well end up being revolutionary in regards to construction methods. I understand the concern of the construction industry, but we can't allow greed or stone age ideas to hold back human progress.

Hopefully we can eventually make it reasonable, durable and safe, because I have always thought that every human being deserves to have a home at a reasonable price. People who are more well off can build what they like, buy all the land they wish, but folks who are not should not have to eternally rent from bloodsuckers, or spend their entire lives paying of ridiculous mortgages on overpriced real estate.

In my opinion, It's one of the biggest tragedies of our Country. That is, the price one must pay with their short time on this planet, all in order to just have a roof over their heads for themselves and their families. Then you have the homeless, where nobody today in this age should be suffering such misery. I am not talking Socialism here folks, I am talking about a reasonable approach to solving the 1# Human condition problem, having a place to call home in this crazy World. ~$heopleNation

I have some experience in reading blueprints and converting those into 3d models of homes. With a printer and what I already have I could turn any of them into a real building. I'm also pretty familiar with the low end of 3d printing.

For someone like me that's not really a handyman, it sure is a neat way of thinking about building my dream home.
