Forget 3D-printed sponges or cooking knives, The Zhuoda Group, a company in China just successfully 3D-printed an entire 200 square meter home and then assembled the structure in just three hours.

While construction of the home took roughly three hours to complete, the entire process required only 10 days from the beginning of printing to the installation of the final module.

Surprisingly — especially considering that 3D-printing is a fairly new and exotic technology — the price for this pseudo-prefab home isn’t outrageously expensive. Running roughly $400-$480 per square meter, this entire six module home costs anywhere from $81,000-$96,000, and will likely get cheaper as 3D-printing advances.
