Printing building

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.

"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!

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:

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!

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

Also, we are only looking at making smaller parts. I am guessing maybe 1ft by 1ft tops, if that helps.

Cadman-LT, are you planning on building something bigger than a breadbox, like a house, or are you looking to make tiny parts? And by machining equipment, do you mean CNC?

The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a Washington State suspension bridge that opened in 1940 and spanned the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
Noting that we now live in an era of “confusion and ill-conceived stuff,” Ammunition design studio founder Robert Brunner, speaking at Gigaom Roadmap, said that by adding connectivity to everything and its mother, we aren't necessarily doing ourselves any favors, with many ‘things’ just fine in their unconnected state.
When my daughter decided she wanted to study engineering, I was very proud of her. At the same time, in the back of my mind, I wondered if she knew what she was in for.
