  1. I want to point something out I did the conversions the square meter to square foot and it came out to be 409.0282 square feet. The average cost per square foot is $125 which means if you were to build a normal house of the same size it would cost around $51,128.53 this house that they 3d printed is a fifth of that. That's amazing

  2. Of course, the land will always be the most expensive part of buying a home .. because, while it is possible to reduce the costs of construction by improving the technology and reducing completion time, thereby increasing supply – you cannot create more land than what is already provided by nature .. unless you cut down more forests .. or build artificial islands or something. Land will thus always be in short supply. It'll eventually come to a point where a 50m2 section will cost 5 million dollars.

    We thus need to get used to the idea of living in high-rise buildings, at least for the long-term future. These will also be 3d printed in future, I would imagine.

    Another thing to look at would be making the traditional farming industry obsolete – sooner or later we will have indoor hydroponic farms.. these will produce far less waste, pollution.. and provide cheaper groceries.. as well as vat-meat factories that produce muscle tissue without the need of raising an entire animal for food, and growing crops just to feed livestock. Farm land will then be used to expand cities.

  3. I don't care if this was $50 thousand dollars… 24 hours for a home is amazing!!….

    but let's be clear, even a home like that will never sell for 11,000. These companies are not wasting their time just to make back their money on what they spent on it, and definitely not for the quick time that they were able to provide it to you. The use of the technology itself is probably 10,000 to be sold.

    The architect who designs the home itself will require thousands of bucks, and when produtcs become in demand, the mark ups for making such a building goes up… If you and I wanted a home of this size we should expect to pay about 60K, and that's not including the taxes and fees our Goverment wants

  4. Nice & practical concept, next stage is having multiple of these machines working together to build a larger house onsite. Or even placing these machine on the roof to create a 2nd floor.

  5. 1. Try printing several floors.
    2. Try printing big rectangular houses.
    I don't see this tech being a big alternative to the existing building methods right now. More like a show off that 3D printing can be scaled up.

  6. Very interesting but 38m2 is too small. I want at least 150m2 the question is, can they do a structure that big? How do they move the printer around a larger structure? Other commenters address land, sewer, gas, water, etc. But you can get very cheaply an old house for demolition that has all that for the price of just the land. The money you save vs. traditional construction you can use to put solar panels on your flat roof!

  7. I'm guessing the inhabitants will sleep in the living room since there doesn't appear to be a bedroom. Basically this would be great for young millennial couples but obviously once a child comes into the picture the house will be way too small

  8. Anyone arguing the reality of 3d printed homes are lost in time somewhere. Dude, this is a cake walk compared to the automation technology that has already existed for decades. I've worked on many types of automation systems and this seems far easier than an automated pharma plant, lab, space shuttle launch, a computer processor, automated car factory, horizontal oil drilling, etc.. This is easy peasy people and you're a dumbass if you think it can't be done.

  9. You know how you solve the problems of the next generation? By not breeding it. You cannot win this ponzi scheme called life/civilization by any technology. Take care of each other and die out as gracefully as possible, because nature will make it violent and full of suffering.

  10. I would like to know what the expected longevity of the building is. That roof doesn't look like it will stand up to much weathering. I also do not trust the "honorable mention", comparatively speaking, that the house mechanicals received.
