Contour Crafting (CC) is basically a “house printer;” when supplied with the proper instructions, it will “print out” a complete shell of a house. Technovelgy readers should be familiar with the work of Dr. Behrokh Khoshnevis from a previous article (see Contour Crafting: 3D House Printer for additional details on how the technique actually works).

According to a recent article in the TimesOnLine, a UK news site, Dr. Khoshnevis’ Contour Crafting techniques will receive their first real world test in Los Angeles sometime in April of this year. The first prototype will be a watertight shell of a two-story house built in 24 hours – without a single construction worker on the job site.
