Building it requires only basic materials like mud and clay.

A place to live, work, food and health are the basics that make a man's life funcitonal. But owning your own house presents a dream of many people. And dreams are sometimes like stars: you can see them, but no matter what you do, you can not reach them. Well, that might change in the near future...

An Italian company based in Massa Lombarda presented the world's largest 3D printer BigDelta that prints eco-friendly houses. The team behind the 12-meter-tall printer is WASP (World's Advanced Saving Project). Its speciality is building houses out of local materials like mud and clay (low environmental footprint and availability are important factors) at almost no cost. Among the 'ingredients' for building WASP houses there is no cement, even though other printers of this kind use it. It is also important to mention that WASP researches are focused on common welfare and shared knowledge.

WASP reports that town of Iglesias in Sardinia has showed interest for the giant 3D printer, making them the most likely locations for the first printed villages to grow.
