外文标题：3D printed houses seen in China's Suzhou
China is already emerging as a trend setter.
This means once the house is built, there will be no room (pun intended) for modifications.
Yes, that is what most ppl call "user friendly", just as Apple isn't very modifiable.
In my house, which was built the old fashioned way in 1999, I can remove an entire wall and expand a room. In fact, an entire industry exists for this purpose: Home improvements.
For a house built with 3D printed structures, how can you replace a wall if that wall became structurally unsound for any reason, such as your son slammed his toy car into the wall or there was a grease fire that damaged the wall ? The builder probably designed the house so that you can remove the wall but to replace it with what ? There are still unanswered questions.
Am not saying this is bad or even flawed. Am just saying there are inevitable compromises.
Son slamming a toy car makes the wall structurally unsound ? :o:
What kind of a toy car does your little one drive ? :unsure:
Or are walls over there in the States not made from bricks and layers of cement anymore ?
I suspect that the entire house is not 3-D printed but the components are. Thus they'd just be like any other modular construction.
China amazes me , they are like ants , never at rest .
How to finish it into liveable status ?
