by: Startacus Admin ~ 26th May 2019
The initiative that's aiming to use 3D printing to create a global solution to homelessness, with an entire community of 3D-printed homes. We may be a long way from doing a Jean Luc Picard and asking our wall for an Earl Grey (hot), but 3D printing is a rapidly evolving technology that has a lot more potential than just printing out a little plastic Infinity Gauntlet, and yes we have gone of...
