I think I’ve seen posts like this every year for the past 15 years

They didnt have that type of technology in the 80s. Wait...what do you mean 15 years ago isnt 1983. I was born in 94 which is like 20 years ago now. No way I'm about to be 30.

I’ve seen some photos from the 50’s of ‘printed’ houses based on extruding concrete on simple arcs using a center pole as a pivot.

Most of those "houses" are glorified emergency shelters.

Ignoring the fact that concrete is one of the worst materials you can build with in terms of environmental impact, 3D printing doesn't solve the problem of building systems...

Electrical, plumbing, and sometimes even HVAC assemblies are typically housed in wall cavities. Building your walls out of a solid, homogeneous material leaves no space for these critical building systems, and even if they did, they would be impossible to maintain once the walls are closed up.

Additive manufacturing has its place in the AEC industry, but anyone claiming 3D printers will essentially replace traditional construction is selling you a lie.

You are further from the year 2000 than you were in 1980.

Im still waiting for my nano technology carbon tubes 3D printed with Ai web3 house in metaverse. I paid top crypto for it.
