3D printing to produce … a house?

3D-dressRed Dot does not pretend to understand how 3D printers work, although we’re trying hard.  It’s just all so sci-fi.

Using this additive process, designers have figured out ways to apply the technology to clothing and jewelry design, industrial design, medical and dental devices, and much more.  You can see many applications, from simple to advanced, and from frivolous to useful, on the site Thingiverse.

In a recent article in CNet, we learned that Dutch architect Janjaap Ruijssenaars is hoping to soon produce the Landscape House (below).  The 3D printer will process sand and a binding agent into 20’x30′ building blocks.
