Apparently the sky is now the limit when it comes to 3D Printing...

RE: Apparently the sky is now the limit when it comes to 3D Printing...

I call complete BS on that article... so many crucial elements are missing from the story as to make it useless. $140k to erect a (what looks like ) 300'+ building? It would cost more than that just for the crane!

Reading the article, as long as the sky is limited to single stories.

@MaGyverS2000:

The photo is a bit misleading - it's not the high-rise in the background, it's the one-storey office in the foreground. The office has a gross floor area of 250 square metres (2690 square feet).

The article says the building cost $140,000 to erect, which I take to mean is the 2-day site installation cost (craneage and joining the modules together etc - similar to the site component of setting up a demountable project office for example), not the total project cost.
