"D-Shape is a new robotic building system using new materials to create superior stone-like structures.This new machinery enables full-size sandstone buildings to be made without human intervention, using a stereolithography 3-D printing process that requires only sand and our special inorganic binder to operate. D-Shape is a new building technology which will revolutionize the way architectural design is planned, and building constructions are executed. By simply pressing the “enter” key on the keypad we intend to give the architect the possibility to make buildings directly, without intermediaries who can add interpretation and realization mistakes."Here is a video from the Discovery Channel:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYaRUVTwIVcAnd a link to their websitehttp://d-shape.com/index.htmOne alternative for 3D printing of buildings is Contour Crafting's prototype machine.http://www.contourcrafting.org/
