Chinese Company Builds 3D-Printed Villa in Less Than 3 Hours

…A company by the name of the ZhuoDa group showcased what is sure to be one of the most exciting developments in modular home building in recent memory: a two-story villa that was built in just three hours using a special material that the company is still keeping a secret. Of course, in addition to the quick construction process, the process also omits the need for any construction machinery in favor of “building block”-like modules that can be shipped in to a “construction site.”…

According to the company, the new 3D modular homes are 90% fabricated within a factory similar to how smaller products such as phones or shoes are made — complete with interior decoration, wiring, plumbing, kitchen sanitary ware, furniture and other facilities already installed for the new homeowner.…

…The company’s new materials are sourced from industrial and agricultural wastes and are “capable of withstanding earthquakes with a magnitude of 9.0 and are also fireproof and waterproof. This new material contains no formaldehyde, ammonia, radon and other harmful substances.” While the company is touting their materials as being capable of withstanding the elements, they are also saying that the material can be made to meet a variety of aesthetic qualities desired by the homeowner including jade, marble, wood, granite, and other decorative sheet textures. Adventurous health-conscious home owners even have the option to have Chinese herbs embedded within the walls for “built-in aromatherapy.”…

“The house built with our new material, including furniture, kitchen utensils and other equipment, costs only 3,500 RMB/square meter ($564)…”
