3D Printing a Building!

We seem to be moving toward being able to 3D print a full-size structure (via DVice).

As always when handworked artifacts become mechanically produced, there are impacts on jobs, crafts, culture, and the human spirit–some negative, some positive–and it’s worth thinking about the general trajectory of our species, but this is a pretty bangin’ application of 3D printing.

TEDx presenter Behrokh Khoshnevis’ presentation gets really exciting at 6:50 when he shows a actual machine building a wall and then at 9:10, when he talks about building structures on the moon!!
