Firstly, thank you to Eiman for arranging this morning’s interview with TodayFM hosts Dermot and Dave where we discussed what impact 3D printing houses will have on the UK’s housing crisis and legacy construction companies.

There’s no doubt that being able to 3D print houses up to 80 percent faster and cheaper than using traditional techniques is a game changer, and as the technology matures, and as regulators get their heads around it, it’s very difficult to see how it won’t become the future standard.
