Chinese specialists have created unique residential buildings - a huge 3D printer was used to "print" them. China can become a pioneer of new architectural technology.

To see the unique structures, you need to visit the industrial park located in Jiangsu province (eastern province of China). A special 3D printer produces parts that can be up to 6.4 m in height and 9.75 m in width. A mixture of construction waste, steel, cement and glass acts as a print material. 3D printing technology makes it easy to create a wall of such a structure. By the way, one of the "printed" buildings has five floors.

The cost of the smallest buildings is in the region of 100 thousand pounds sterling (approximately 150 thousand US dollars). Despite the rather impressive price, the developer WinSun has already received many orders for such buildings. The advantage of the approach is that 3D printing makes it easy to recycle construction waste. In general, the construction site of the future will become much more environmentally friendly.

This is not the first time a Chinese company has shown something like this. Chinese engineers printed ten small identical buildings using a 3D printer back in March last year. Thus, China can become a pioneer in this area.
