Chinese company 3D prints 10 buildings  in a day using construction waste

~Chinese materials firm Yingchuang New Materials has reportedly produced 10 buildings in 24 hours, using a custom-built machine that outputs layers of construction waste mixed with cement.

Sand printing: CNC arm sprays sand and bin der to form rough shapes.  Developed by grad students on can easily imagine dropping these into a desert and rehung later have bridges and houses built by bots. Similar to cement printing - just a differ binder and head.

The parts, such as frame, wall are printed separately. Such a new type of 3D-printed structure . All materials used were created from recycled construction waste, industrial waste and tailings. mix of cement and construction waste to construct the walls layer by layer

Shanghai-based WinSun, an engineering and architecture firm, has recently printed garden villas as a part of an initiative to promote low-carbon construction.

If it would work on Mars why not on Earth? Queen B is placed atop a large subterranean container that's filled with water and heated with either an underground electric heater or a more exotic-sounding exothermic chemical reactor. This would keep the base of the home relatively warm, and the heated water would also be pumped into the Queen B's insulated walls and radiators. I like the expandable pod idea.
