​​3D homes to be the future of real estate

3D homes to be the future of real estate?A Suzhou, China-based company is experimenting with building homes using a large 3D printer and recycling construction waste, and the resulting product is just short of miraculous.

WinSun, or Yingchuang in China, uses a specialty “ink” in its printers made out of construction waste such as high-quality stone, cement and fibre. According to VanCityBuzz.com, that waste is combined with digital designs, prints walls, bricks and insulation.

According to the site 3ders.com, 10 3D printed homes arrived in Shanghai in March 2014, each measuring 200 square metres with construction costs just under $6,000 CAD. The homes only took 24 hours to build.

Chief engineer of China Construction No.8 Engineering Bureau, Ma Rongquan believes the properties “are in full compliance with the relevant national standards. It is safe, reliable, and features a good integration of architecture and decoration. But as there is no specific national standard for 3D printing architecture, we need to revise and improve such a standard for the future.”
