As housing and environmental concerns grow, many architects are looking into 3-D printers for a solution. And one, Ma Yihe, has found it.
Ma Yihe’s company, WinSun, has figured out a way to print houses using 10mx3.3m printers, costing only 5,000 dollars each. Ma Yihe hopes to construct 3-D printed skyscrapers, but at the momement Chinese regulations don’t allow multi-story printed buildings.
WinSun plans to use the technology to help poor conditions in Chinese villages and expand from there.
