Sorry If anyone think I take over any interesting issue, and turn it my direction, ---- I am avare this and please tell me .

The material are all sheet materials.
Somhow I told myself this is a major thing, that just one type of material and one type of cutting equipment, will garentie a cheaper building element. Sheet material then, is steel sheet. plywood, concreet faces cast to form a "sheet material" , any sheet material that can be cut. Manufactoring equipment are water cutter, laser cutter, N.C. router, jigsaw.
Now with a tradisional steel structure you need different extruded steel beams, hangers, knees ,bolts ; ---- each asking a long line of manufactoring mashines that when you cut an assembly in sheet material, are substituded with in theorie one type of manufactoring , cutting sheet materials. No bolts compared what you need for all those different steel beams, that you don't need. No hangers knees as the assembly structure make this much better, --- you will not se a 3D-H building pancake .
