The world’s first 3D-printed community is been developed. A giant 3D printer built two houses in an impoverished part of Mexico, breaking ground on what developers say will be the first 3D printed neighbourhood in the world. New Story is using a 33-foot printer that pipes out a concrete mix layer by layer. It takes about 24 hours over several days to build two houses at the same time. They hope to build 50 new houses by the end of 2020 for families that live in a areas prone to flooding. “These families are the most vulnerable, and in the lowest income … and they’re living on about an average of $3 a day,” said Brett Hagler, CEO and co-founder of New Story, the nonprofit building the community.
