There are ten new buildings in Shanghai, China. These buildings are special. They are not made of bricks. The buildings were printed.

Ten grey building were built in Shanghai. They may look like normal houses from a distance, but they are quite special. They are China’s first buildings made with 3D printing technology.

A 3D printer uses a special material. It puts this material in layers. It puts one layer on another. The layers are well connected. They will not move apart. The walls are only three centimetres thick, but the material is very strong. It is five times harder than normal materials.

Difficult words

  • brick – hard piece of material which is used for building
  • layer – material which covers something
  • connected – to touch

The houses were built without using bricks or tiles. The walls are made of a special mixture of materials like sand or concrete. This material is printed by 3D printers which were developed in East China. The printers lay one layer of the material on top of another. The layers are well connected and they will not deform. The layers are only three centimetres thick, but they are five times harder than normal materials.

Difficult words

  • tile – flat square piece which is used in buildings
  • concrete – material which is used for building
  • layer – amount of material that covers a surface of something
  • deform – to change shape
