Architect To Build Home Using 3-D Printer


The 3-D printer has all the capabilities to become one of the most brilliant inventions in recent memory. Any tool or trinket imaginable can be constructed through the use of this mind-boggling advancement.

But so far, mid-sized toys are all that have been conjured by 3-D printers. A Dutch architect named Janjaap Ruijssenaars, however, has much bigger plans.

Janjaap is planning on using a 3-D printer to create an innovative experiment of a house in the shape of a giant figure 8.

Janjaap will obviously need a printer of enormous size to complete the task, and he believes that one capable of printing 20 to 30 foot blocks can in fact be made.

It will be a massive aluminum structure that will use sand to form marble blocks. All that's needed afterward to create the frame of the home will be concrete and fiberglass.

He expects construction to begin as soon as 2014.
