Recycled waste product used:-

At the end, he has exhausted twenty million Yuan ($3.1m, £1.9m) and twelve years to expand 3D printer vi.6 metres tall, ten metres wide and one hundred fifty metres long that option a twignozzle Associate in Nursingd an automatic material feeding system.

WinSun at present holds ninety eight national patents for its 3D printing building technology and construction resources. Last year, Ma used AutoCAD software package to system the structure of the homes, that every livetwo hundred sq. metres, whereas conjointly conniving tracing ways so plumbing, electrical lining, insulation materials and windows might be extra later.

The houses came out thus well that he then made associate in Nursing structure for his company covering a neighborhood of 10,000 sq m, that took simply a month to construct, victimisation Associate in Nursing mechanical system of 4 3D printers.
