Chinese company WinSun Decoration Design Engineering has created new 3D-printed buildings, said to be five-storey villas.

Measuring 1,100m², the villas were created in an industrial park in China’s Jiangsu province and are complete with internal and external decorations.

Engineers used a 500ft long printer and recycled construction waste for ink, which is sprayed on layer by layer until thick walls are created by the printer.

The ink is said to be a combination of recycled construction waste, glass, steel and cement.

Using the latest technology, which may lead to the building sites of the future to be less noisy, more clean and easier on the eye, construction workers are at low risk of coming into contact with any dangerous materials.

WinSun has designed the 3D-printed villa for Taiwan-based real estate company Tomson Group, according to 3ders news site.

The company’s team used a machine measuring 20ft-tall, 33ft-wide and 132ft-long and started with a basic CAD drawing that they fed to the 3D printer.

The structure’s walls and other components had been fabricated offsite with a diagonal reinforced print pattern and shipped in later to be pieced together.

According to WinSun, the construction methods are able to save 60% of the materials typically required to construct a home.

In April last year, WinSun unveiled ten homes that were completely 3D-printed using recycled concrete material.
