As 3D-prinitng technology is used everywhere to built anything within fractions of minutes, a company called Apis Cor has built a house in just 24 hours. Companies usually used to build 3D-printed houses with compartments made off-site and only assembled on the site. But, this company used a mobile 3D printer on site to construct the beautiful house.
Located in Russia, this 400-square-foot 3D-printed house has a hallway, bathroom, living room and kitchen and is located in one of Apis Cor’s facilities in Russia. The main components of the house, including the walls, partitions and building envelope were printed solely with a concrete mixture.
Windows, furniture and extra fixtures were later added on, and they painted the exterior of the house with a glossy yellow paint. The cost to construct this house is estimated $10,134. The company says that this house can last up to 175 years. That’s impressive.
“We want to change public views that construction can’t be fast, eco-friendly, efficient and reliable at the same time,” says founder Nikita Chen-yun-tai on Apis Cor’s website. “Our goal is to become the biggest international construction company to solve problems of accommodation around the globe.”
Apis Cor has claimed to be the first company to have developed a 3D printer than can print whole buildings on-site. Last year, the world’s first 3D-printed apartment building was constructed in China, with the structures printed off-site.
Construction 3D printing opens up new possibilities for a greater future. Just imagine, you can build the house as you wish in different shapes and sizes.
