The days of lengthy, inefficient, and costly construction projects could be coming to an end. Private inventor Ma Yihe designed a 3D printer that built ten houses in a single day! The china based company building and research center are all constructed of 3D printed walls. The building walls are energy efficient and made of recycled construction waste and mortar. The roofs still have to be applied by hand because the printers aren’t yet versatile enough to manage the complete task.
Not only is the printer environmentally ideal but it potentially has the ability to produce sound low cost housing for poverty stricken communities. In all the houses are produced for around $5,000; the company intends to produce them as a method for modernizing poor housing conditions in Chinese villages. Even though this technology will continue to be improved upon, 3D printed housing is the kind of innovative thinking and technology that will fuel the advancement of mankind while preserving the environment.

Since you’re here…
…We have a small favor to ask. Fewer and fewer people are seeing Anti-Media articles as social media sites crack down on us, and advertising revenues across the board are quickly declining. However, unlike many news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall because we value open and accessible journalism over profit — but at this point, we’re barely even breaking even. Hopefully, you can see why we need to ask for your help. Anti-Media’s independent journalism and analysis takes substantial time, resources, and effort to produce, but we do it because we believe in our message and hope you do, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting and finds value in it helps fund it, our future can be much more secure. For as little as $1 and a minute of your time, you can support Anti-Media. Thank you. Click here to support us
