Thomas Edison’s cast concrete house. (via archive photo & fm) Earlier this year a scientists at the University of Southern California announced that they have developed a 3D printing system of sorts that could potentially build a multi-story house in just under a day.

The printer actually sits o ...

Hello world, I have been on this site for quite a while, but never used it, so here is my first post.   I just received my 3D printer, a Printrbot Jr (V2) from Printrbot on Tuesday 4th February 2014.
