It sounds like an April Fool’s Day prank, but 3D printers have come a long way since the first models starting churning out little tchotchkes. Nowadays we’re seeing 3D-printed (and functional) hearts, hands, and now houses. Professor Behrokh Khoshnevis at the University of Southern California wants to “scale up 3D-printing to building-scale” with the project “Contour Crafting.” We’re not talking about dollhouses, here.
