We have always discussed at length about 3D Printed homes so let us sum up the unique points of this extra ordinary development :-
1. A patented method of the 3D printing technology was used by the fabricators.
2. The project was completed in 54 hrs & at 20% less cost than traditional manufacturing process.

3. The company claimed that for upcoming projects same house would be ready in 33 hrs & cost would be reduced by 25% in 5 years & upto 40% in 10 to 15 years.
4. A few 100 years old tress were saved due to curving around, freedom given by flexibility of 3d printing technology.
