3D printer used to create

6-story home in east China


By Zhou Zhou


A 3D printer that was used to print 10 houses in a single day last year has been used to print a massive six-story villa. China View has more.

Shanghai-based private company Winsun New Materials used its patented 3D printer to print a six-story building in the city of Suzhou in east China’s Jiangsu Province. The printer was also used to print a three-story building. The inventor of the printer gave us some details about the process.

MA YIHE ( inventor): The six-story building has an area of about 1,100 square meters. We printed one story each day until it was done.

Ma’s printer uses what is called an intelligent printing array. The array consists of a series of nozzles that spray a combination of cement and construction waste, printing building walls layer by layer.

MA YIHE ( inventor):  The cost of the materials makes it 20 to 50 percent cheaper to print a building than to build one conventionally.

Ma compared the differences between conventionally-produced load-bearing beams and 3D-printed beams.

MA YIHE ( inventor): This is a conventionally produced beam. You have to create a model before casting it. After casting, the model has to be dismantled, a steel frame must be built and material has to be used to fill it. Looking at the 3D-printed beam, you can see it’s solid and can bear loads. It looks better and comes into being all at once. That is its advantage.
