RE: 3D Printing In Construction About To Go Mainstream

This indeed shows more on why technological advancement will always be sought. Watching the movie shows how swift and easy building a building could be and also how safe it could also be while saving much time.

The only problem I have is that the machine will keep replacing the human force their bye increasing the unemployment population rate. The machine was virtually handling close to 10 to 15 jobs with just one operator.

Very astute observation and one that I think is grossly overlooked. Yes people are aware that jobs are being eliminated by automation. However, they still hold onto the idea that technology always creates more jobs than it destroys. The problem I have with this is the pace.

As you point out, this one machine might take out 10-15 jobs. I do not know how many work a job site setting the "structure" of the house but there always seems to be a lot of people when the cinder blocks are being laid. This can do it with a couple of people.

Corporations have incentive to automate so it is coming. The only question is what are people going to do about it? Expecting it to stop or slow down is not going to happen.

After all, technology is what allows us to progress as a society.
