A new, enormous 3D printer whips cheap homes out of mud

3D Printing Review

Mud houses all but disappeared from the world in the 20th century, thanks to industrialization and the advent of commercial building materials. That’s why the Italy-based World’s Advanced Saving Project (WASP) is trying to bring mud back as a popular building material—with a modern twist. The printer uses only water, dirt, clay, and plant fibers to make earthen dwellings—and by using locally dug-up materials, avoids expensive shipping and materials costs.
