One of the videos off to the side showed houses being 3D printed in a mix of concrete, sand and glass fibre.

They park a huge 3D printer at your block and set it in motion. A day or two later and most of your house is built.

When this starts happening in Aus, brickies will be up in arms!

I thought it was interesting that you can mix mediums in the one part being printed. Say you are making a plexiglass light cover. You can make the part including the rubber gasket as one single part.
Amazing technology.

Never quite understood the technology but it now makes perfect sense. Kinda like a BIG inkjet/laser printer :)

Yup and it has actually been around for decades which surprised me. Obviously advances in materials and technology make it viable now.

The advancement in materials is amazing.  To get real high quality parts you have to use very expensive printers.  Really helps with R&D and making quick concept models.
