Some of the first 3D printing concepts included trinkets, furniture pieces and houses, all of which have now been successfully produced, showing that creating large-scale ideas with additive manufacturing is more than possible. Cazza Construction Technologies is one company that's looking to the future of 3D printing by putting together ideas for 3D-printed smart cities.
In collaboration with engineers across the world, Cazza has been working on the development of technology to build a 100-square-meter house in concrete within 24 hours and a 1,000-square-foot home within 10 days—with just one machine.
Cazza is also prepared to scale up its ideas for the creation of smart cities in the future. As co-founder and COO Fernando De Los Rios says: "We already have the patented technologies available not just for houses, but also buildings and architectural structures of massive scale. We plan to release some of these technologies for houses in December, and the technology for buildings in mid-2017."
