USC wants to 3D-print a house

USC wants to 3D-print a house | 3D Printing and Fabbing | Scoop.it

"Are 3D printers just for making little toys a knick-knacks? Not if USC researchers have anything to say about it. They believe it is possible to construct a monstrous mechanical machine that uses 3D printing technology to create a house. That is, it would create the entire building with everything from walls to floors to the ceiling, and even plumbing and elecrical wiring. The only part that would need to be installed manually would be windows and doors, but the cutouts for all of these would already exist. And get this - the entire process from start to finish could take less than 24 hours. Imagine a future where you go online to buy a house, design it yourself, and have it built and ready to live in within a few days. That's where this is headed."

The Future Of Medicine Is In 3D Printing

The Future Of Medicine Is In 3D Printing | 3D Printing and Fabbing | Scoop.it

"3D printers are all about democratizing traditional distribution models. Before,  we would have to demand an item and then wait for a company to manufacture and  distribute said item. 3D printing puts the manufacturing and distribution into  the hands of the people. It’s that core concept that drives Cronin to build a 3D  printer capable of creating medicine."
