The future is CNC Homes

CNC Homes

CNC Homes

Behrokh Khoshnevis, a professor from the University of Southern California and CEO of ContourCrafting, recently presented a TED talk about how giant CNC machines could 3D print homes quickly, cost-effectively, and efficiently.  One of the most amazing implications of such a CNC system – extruding the infrastructure for a home – is that much of the most dangerous work involved in construction could be completely eliminated.

Just as with printing smaller plastic objects on a 3D printer, once you start using a CNC machine like a MakerBot to create an object – the complexity of the infrastructure becomes almost irrelevant.  While it might be much more work for humans to construct a circular, curvy, or angular building – such complexities are reduced to a mere toolpath when handed off to a giant printer.
