Is it possible to build a two-story villa within 3 hours?

It is. On July 17 in Xi’an, Northwest China’s Shanxi province, a crane assembled modules of living room, bedroom, kitchen, and restroom within less than 3 hours.

The modules were made in the factory using 3D printing technology. “Traditional construction requires half a year to build up a villa, whereas using 3D print modules, the process can be shortened to around a dozen of days.” says the engineer, who is in charge of the design and production of the 3D printed villa.

The cost per square meter is around US$400-480. Although this technology is yet to enter market for massive production, costumers can soon cater their own made-to-order villas.
