This is a great idea I think I remember reading about something similar a while back that used rubble to create the building materials, so would be useful in areas that had been recently destroyed. It's ingenious the solutions that companies are coming up with nowadays.
Damn clever! I remember seeing another construction method where inflatable structures were made, then concrete poured on top/in like a mould (some were dome shaped, others were slightly more complex). I guess if you need to erect shelter really quickly, these things can be hugely helpful.
Can we use all the plastic that's getting dumped into the oceans?
With these huge concrete like structures what happens if the nozzle gets blocked when printing?
Bit more on this issue.
Thanks for the updated link @nivrip - I just had a read and was struck by this comment:
That's a HUGE number . I don't know how they class reliable shelter, but whatever way it is, it's pretty horrifying.
This 3D Printed House Took Only 24 Hours To Make
It's awful We're lucky to live in a country where the problem is minimal, but there's still a big problem with homelessness.
I guess 3D printed housing can only be a viable solution where land cost isn't a problem...
