It's been well understood that the power of design is in the hands of those who can deliver. What about complete homes for $5000 via 3D printing? They are here. Here's how:
No longer is it days, weeks or months of preparation, teams of builders and scores of resources. Enter Win Sun Engineering possibly the first full functional construction firm to fully design and deploy a working system for the construction of 3D Printed and Manufactured homes on site. With no formal codes for buildings of these types of designs, the current technology is limited to basic structures, and construction time seems to be only days for a fully formed structure. Discussed in a lecture given in 2013, and a subsequent TED talk, Behrokh Khoshnevis gives the beginning of how and why. However, while this was taking place, Win Sun Engineering had already launched their machine. Now it's up to the designers to push the envelop of what can and can't be done.
