3D printed house

Chinese constriction company Winsun has 3D-printed an entire five-storey apartment block, along with a sizeable villa, at Suzhou Industrial Park, a China-Singapore joint venture in Eastern China. A six-metre-tall 3D printer pumps out the requisite components at the WinSun’s factory for assembly on-site, with the company reckoning the process can cut production times by as much as 70%, and labour costs by between 50% and 80%.

“We produce a mix of cement and construction waste to construct the walls layer by layer, a process much like how a baker might ice a cake,” says WinSin, which boasts it can build a small house in under 24 hours. 

The 3D Print Canal House Project from DUS Architects in Amsterdam is aiming to 3D-print housing with new resources derived from bio-based raw materials, or with recycled plastics, and has produced the 3D Print Canal House is printed with the KamerMaker machine.
