a mega machine? oh, yes.
The technology already exists, in 3 different machines
In Vermont, a man named Tyler McNaney has made a tabletop machine, the Filabot, that can recycle household plastic into filament. Construction machines exist to do it to our scale.
Small multi-material printers exist, and the software is open source, a gift from M.I.T. (the world is so interesting and beautiful).
These will be our innovations
Ensure the process stays very, very fast.
1 house per day.
Take construction waste as source material.
Print multiple ecological materials at once, large scale, including recycled concrete, wood, and insulation.
Promote and develop passive solar design elements within local building codes.
Grow and host a global public design platform, where makers and developers can interact and innovate.
Build a corporate environment inspired by the best practices of horizontal organizations, putting people absolutely at the center of all activities, including with reduced and flexible work hours.

we'RE PRINTING HOMES for everyone
It will contain toxic materials that are highly transformed, non-recyclable, non-reusable, inefficient, and frequently transported.
Waste from its construction and demolition will contribute to up to 27% of municipal landfill.
Ignoring ecology, weather, and climate, it will cost significantly more for electricity than it could.A home can be well made at a reasonable cost.
-Significant savings on home construction costs
-Set the highest standards for sustainability, health, and environmental considerations.
-Treat our partners and team as family
-Machine-print in one run: concrete, plastics, wood, insulation and ceramic.
