(SOUNDBITE) (Dutch) RETIRED SHOPKEEPER FROM AMSTERDAM AND 3D PRINTED HOUSE TENANT, ELIZE LUTZ, 70, SAYING:"I find it pretty. I find it just pretty. An irregularity (in the wall). It's like there was a stutter here and then the printing went on. It is really pretty. We feel very good here. I find the colours magnificent. The interior's colors are very pure. It is very good."

The two-bedroom house was printed in 24 parts in a nearby factory

before being assembled on the plot

(SOUNDBITE) (Dutch) DEAN OF THE DEPARTMENT OF THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT AND PROFESSOR OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES AT EINDHOVEN UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY, THEO SALET, SAYING:"With this small construction behind us, I think a big step has been taken today towards a high quality construction industry. With this technology, that is to say digitalization technology, we have greatly contributed to bringing more versatility, sustainability and health to the construction industry."
