Printed House – level 1

25-02-2021 07:00

A US company builds a special house. The house is from concrete. It is not from bricks. A 3D printer makes the house. The house is in New York State. It is a demo house. It means that nobody lives in it. People can come and look at it.

The house is 180 square meters large. The printer makes it in two days. Some people like it. Some people do not like it very much.

Older people prefer the usual way of building homes. Young people know 3D printers. They like this idea more.

3D printers use concrete. Concrete is a usual material for building. It is possible that houses from 3D printers will be a normal thing in the future.

Difficult words: concrete (a grey material for building houses and other buildings), brick (a block which people use to build things), 3D printer (a printer which does not print on paper but it prints real things).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
