Hack the Flexlock design and make with compressed earth machine, opensource ecology has plans. Threaded rods runs the height of the building and is tightened down with nuts, minimizing the concrete usage. Only the ends of the construction is filled with concrete, using much less than the (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9cDy9XkXPw clay soil mixed with 8% cement, exceeds concrete strength) design.

This same information, including Plans Dimensionados, is available as PDF document for free on the WEB. CETA RAM CONSTRUCTION MANUAL (1981) reads: "It is a simple, easy-to-copy machine, the design of which has not been and will not be patented. Replicas of CETA RAM can be built using Use of the material presented in Part Two of this Manual, which includes detailed drawings, instructions and specifications for the artisan manufacture of one or a few units at a time. Therefore, the project is in the public domain, without patents; So much so that in Mexico there is at least one workshop that manufactures and commercializes it on a small scale. Likewise, it is known that it has been manufactured and used in other countries.
