i think for upcoming places this would be fantastic. i imagine the buildings would last barely past 30 years, but would be a nice start for some places. can imagine alot of angry builders though, not realising thet there job would now be playing with giant printers :p

    i visited a concrete factory where they use 3d printers to put concrete and create buildings. In the back room they were using this same technology to develop military bunker systems.. so the army can quickly build concrete bunkers for new military hot zones.... this technology should and probably will be used in a wide spectrum of areas.
