WASP (World's Advanced Saving Project) is interested in creating houses and other products through the methods of 3D printing creating a maker economy. 

To this end, they have created BigDelta, reportedly the world's largest delta 3D printer. The 12-metre (40 ft) tall behemoth was brought to life in Massa Lombarda, Italy, with the purpose of building nearly zero-cost housing through the use of local materials and as little energy as possible. It offers quick and inexpensive relief to disaster areas and addresses the future housing needs of a rapidly growing world population.
