Hey, I just came across this idea that sounds really cool in theory, but I'm wondering if you experts out there would know if it's actually technically possible.

3D printing to create ultra-high efficiency passive solar buildings: Link removed/challenge/e...inable-homes/idea/983

Each home is custom built to minimize heating and cooling costs by using techniques to take advantage of its natural environment. Currently, they are looking into building the homes through a combination of modular construction and 3D printing.

It seems crazy to 3D print housing but the resulting cuts in energy consumption are huge! What do you guys think?
