BTW, if anyone wants to throw me some advice on 3D-printers vs machines....feel free. I'm still thinking. Thanks in advance!

Ann and Cabe,

 

 My buddy just rented a building. We were going to get some machining equipment...lathes and mills...but I am thinking maybe some 3D printers. See how it goes I guess. I suppose it's dependent on the parts being made so we have to figure that out first. Anyways, I love all articles on 3D-printing! Ann knows that!

Cabe, thanks for covering this in DN. I included this technology, along with others, for 3D printing buildings in an article for a UBM sister publication, Future Cities, Your Next City Block, Printable on Site:

"Conforming to local building codes" was the phrase that came to mind.  I also wonder how building services will be installed.  I suppose piping can be planned in and be integral to the walls, but fishing electrical wiring will become a bit more complicated.

Still - it's a mobius house!

Hey Cabe, this is a 3D printer application I never thought I'd see. Slounds like the building will be a tad pricy, but I'd have to see comps to really get an idea. Amazing, just amazing.
