New photos of 10 ‘green’ 3D-printed houses in Shanghai, built in 24 hours
"The houses, each covering an area of 200 sq m, in Shanghai’s Qingpu district are printed with special “ink” - construction waste, tailings and industrial waste that was recycled. The best thing is, they are built with very little labor and they are incredibly inexpensive (approximately $4,800 each). The company hopes one day the technology could provide affordable housing for the impoverished.
"We purchased parts for the printer overseas, and assembled the machine in a factory in Suzhou," said Ma Yihe, CEO of the company. "Such a new type of 3D-printed structure is environment-friendly and cost-effective."
Ma said that the well-known housing group Tomson has approached the company and they are planning to build an entire villa with this new technology.
Ma now plans to build 100 recycling factories in the country and continue collecting and transforming waste into cost-effective “ink” for 3D printers.”
personalfactory: Though it is quite new technology and durability and strength of houses 3d printed using it is yet to be thoroughly tested it is a potential direction of the whole new branch of building industry if not the main course… Check also contourcrafting.org (in this technology the entire building is created in situ in opposite to pre-3dprinted sections in case of WinSun Co method).
Y estaré allí donde ya nada vale nada
hasta que algún día una dulce gitanilla, con mocos y pecas en la cara,
limpie con su manga grasienta
la suciedad que la sociedad pegó a mi alma;
y volveré a ser un juguete reluciente de amor y de alegría.
Love… no such thing.
Whatever it is that binds families and married couples together, that’s not love. That’s stupidity or selfishness or fear. Love doesn’t exist.
Self interest exists, attachment based on personal gain exists, complacency exists. But not love. Love has to be reinvented, that’s certain.
