London: The construction work on world`s first 3D-printed house has commenced in Amsterdam.

The parts of the house, which is being constructed by DUS Architects, are being printed with the KamerMaker, or RoomBuilder, using a recyclable compound hotmelt which is 75 per cent plant oil, reported.
According to the firm, each of the 13 printed rooms of the house consist of several parts, which are joined together as large Lego-like blocks.
Oliver Wainwright, the architecture firm`s Hedwig Heinsman said that with 3D printing, there is zero waste, reduced transportation costs, and everything can be melted down and recycled.

This could revolutionise how we make our cities, he said.
