USC professor takes 3D printing to a new level

LOS ANGELES (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - 3D printing has gone to a new level.

A professor at the University of Southern California says he has developed a 3D printer that can build a 2,500 square foot home in just 20 hours.

The professor says its main goal is for humanitarian purposes--such as building structures when natural disasters strike.

The 3D printer can lay out concrete and can build a multi-story home equipped with plumbing, electrical networks, and tile flooring.
