Amsterdam canal house built with 3-D printer

A 3D printer, rear, and part of a printed canal house, foreground, are lit by the sunlight in Amsterdam, Netherlands, on Thursday, March 13. Dutch architecture firm Dus has embarked on a project to build a 21st-century version of a classic Amsterdam canal house, printing it out piece by piece with an oversized 3-D printer, and then slotting the pieces together like oversized Lego blocks.
