WinSun Decoration Design Engineering Co. have 3D printed homes in under a day! By using recycled material (industrial/construction wastes) instead of plastic filament, WinSun are able to make several small homes (Length: 150 m x Width: 10 m x Height: 6.6 m) in Shanghai, China. This is just the beginning for WinSun according to Ma YiHe, CEO of WinSun. His plans for the future is to use recycling companies in China as their main resource for 3D printing homes. YiHe feels that this will provide an inexpensive and comfortable living style.

No matter how you look at it, the future is here and changing lives for the better.
