We built these
White Houses from plastic ... and electoral votes

To illustrate the 2016 presidential election results in real time, The Post is using a pair of Makerbot 3D Replicator+ machines to print two identical models of The White House in red and blue. Each model represents the 270 electoral votes needed to win the White House. As states are called by the Associated Press for Hillary Clinton (blue) and Donald Trump (red), the printers will print just that much of the White House.

By the end of the night, one White House will be complete and 1600 Pennsylvania will know its next occupant.
