China Just 3D-Printed an Entire Mansion

Luxury LegoLand just got real. Chinese construction company, Winsun, revealed their largest 3D printed houses produced to date earlier this month in the eastern city of Suzhou, reports TechinAsia.

 

The two buildings on display were a 3-story, 1,100 square meter McMansion and a modest 5 story apartment block.

The walls are formed out of individual layers of 3D printed concrete and then put together to build erect the structures.

These buildings are just exhibition pieces for now, but given the company’s track record with 3D printed 1-story homes last year, it would stand to reason these bigger structures are well on their way to the mainstream.

They may not be much to look at, but the technology behind these structures is mighty impressive and may offer a glimpse into the future of the global construction industry.
