Spin cast it's not viable for large pieces for home building.

I refer about his video of Gaia aircrete casting :

See the large casting?
How keep to foam instact to a uniform final aircrete? I think it's impossible to fill the mold in a single procedure.
The curved bricks it's interesting, but I never saw any of their videos of workshop using it.

Hey... How much costs basic portland cement on USA?
I believe on Brazil the cost of portland cement it's about 55% than on USA. Need to confirm...
Aircrete could be a great cost saving building technic for Brazil.
