First 3D-printed apartment building [PHOTOS], Chinese construction company WinSun is using a 3D printer to produce buildings.

After printing 10 homes at a cost of just $5,000 in 24 hours in March of 2014 using a mixture of ground industrial and construction waste as the material, WinSun achieved another incredible milestone: printing a five-story apartment building.

CNet reports that WinSun also printed a 12,000 square foot mansion in an industrial park. The company seemingly emerged from nowhere and surprised everyone.

WinSun managed to 3D print the entire apartment building, consisting of 6 stories, as well as an impressive house.

These structures were unveiled at the Suzhou Industrial Park, of east China's Jiangsu Province, and the apartment building alone features a structure which is approximately 1,100 square meters in size.
