Architect 3D Prints Earthquake Proof House

A Chinese architecture firm has 3D-printed a villa for use in the countryside which it claims can withstand an earthquake measuring 8 on the Richter scale.

Huashang Tengda developed a massive, new 3D printer for the two-storey, 400sq. foot villa on- site in 45 days. The structure used 20 tons of concrete to create walls which are 25cm thick. An 8.0 earthquake would usually even cause serious damage to earthquake resistant buildings.Almost 100,000 people have died in earthquakes in China since 2008.

Website 3dprint.com quoted the company as saying, “Because of its speed, low cost, simplicity and use of environment-friendly raw materials, [this technology) can generally improve the quality of people’s lives.”
