3D printing custom houses in 20 hours

A new video from Contour Crafting.

We’ve been following the Contour Crafting project by Professor Behrokh Khoshnevis of the University of Southern California for awhile now. If you didn’t see our posts with their early prototype or their proposal to 3D print buildings on the moon, then I suggest starting with those.

This video is of a presentation Khoshnevis gave at a TEDx conference. It includes some videos and images of their newest large-scale prototypes as well as a wealth of information about where they expect this project to go.

It’s worth watching the entire presentation, but if you’re in a hurry the footage of the prototype in action starts at 6:45.
