Brilliant and a feat of modern technology but I worry for jobs with this kind of stuff


Time to consider another model for society, based on service to others, free income and abundancy, and not, like todays society, based on service to self, low or no income and scarcity.


A nice vision.. but you have to be realistic ..


This is realistic.

We either change our ways or collapse into nothing.

Yeah 24 hrs to put down ... let's be real tho to put up the walls and roof with no foundation electrical plumbing... well I'm fairly shure that could be done with wood aswell

Now if they could include hvac vents plumbing
And electrical so u just came in and ran wires

Otherwise this isn't much different from the one built to build concrete houses





No look into it, they cover all the foundations, electricals, everything...pretty damn shmick.

struction companies can provide. Foundation works — minus 15% Printer prints a retained framework for foundation, in which reinforcing armatures are installed and heavy concrete is poured in. Building frame construction — minus 25% Machine builds a retained framework for a ferroconcrete base, self bearing walls and partitions. With ferroconcrete as its core the building has all the engineering calculations methods readily available. Outer and inner finishing – minus 60% Printer prints walls with machine precision and makes them even and smooth. Roughing stage can be skipped straight to final finishing. Services — minus 20% We plan the layout of electrical junctions, engineering systems and nodes within the house in advance. Then we upload the project in the software and get a ready blueprint for laying down inner services.

Is the house build to codes?





Surely the printer could be programmed to suit the codes relative to where it is being built., it would be silly if that was not incorporated into the design

This certainly has possibilities but the tech has to mature a bit and also it needs to win the confidence of the prospective market for the buildings it creates.

As for speed, there was a contest in Sydney some decades ago where a swarm of trainee tradesmen managed to build a conventional brick veneer home in about 2-3 days. Of course they worked in shifts around the clock but 3D printer robots do that too (don't need a break except for the occasional grease & oil change).
