3D-Printed Houses for the Homeless

Makeshift housing no more!


If all goes according to plan, 50 families in Tabasco, Mexico, currently living in makeshift housing will soon move into 3D-printed homes constructed by the Australian firm Icon. The company's Vulcan II 3D printer can build a 500-square-foot cement house with two bedrooms and one bathroom in just a few days. The company says its methods are cheaper and less wasteful than traditional home construction.
