The nature of construction has remained intensely manual throughout recorded history. Contour Crafting is a mega-scale 3D fabrication process aiming at automated on-site construction of whole structures as well as subcomponents. Using this process, a single building or a colony of buildings may be constructed automatically with all plumbing and electrical utilities embedded in each; yet each building could have a different design which can include complex curved features. The entry level implication is especially profound for emergency shelter construction and low income housing. NASA is exploring possible applications of Contour Crafting in building on other planets.
