A pioneering 3D-printed house just popped up in Xian, China - and Chinese company ZhuoDa “built” the two-story villa in less than three hours. Made up of six 3D-printed modules, the house was assembled like LEGO bricks before a live audience who were then invited to explore the interior. The modular fireproof home can withstand a magnitude-9 earthquake and is made from a special construction material the company is keeping secret.

Incredible!
A little imagination and foresight can see where 3D printing may take us in 20 years..

Not long ago the Chinese built a huge hospital fully fitted within thirty days. Something like two hundred beds. It was accomplished by prefabricating wall, floor and ceiling components and basically "plug and play" the construction. If nothing else, it was certainly built to an objective purpose.
