3D-print is everywhere now and everything is 3d printed now — including houses, of all things — it’s pretty important that a company built one in just 24 hours.
Located in Russia, this 400-square-foot home (37 square meters) was built in just a day, at a cost of just over $10,000.
3D-printing company Apis Cor built the house using a mobile printer on-site.
The main components of the house, including the walls, partitions, and building envelope were printed solely with a concrete mixture.
Fixtures like windows and furnishings were later added on, and a shiny coat of paint added to the exterior of the house.
The total construction cost of the house? Just $10,134.
The house consists of a hallway, bathroom, living room and kitchen and is located in one of Apis Cor’s facilities in Russia.
The company has claimed that the house can last up to 175 years.
“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 that can print whole buildings on-site.
