A house from a 3D printer in 24 hours

Technology trójdimensional printing has been on the market for a good few years. With the help of 3D printers, there are created abundantóSome objects, such as human skinóra and even whole organs. Houses have also already been printed, but no one has done it in such a króin a short time. A house from a 3D printer by Apis Cor was created in less than 24 hours.

The time of formation of the house róvaries depending on the technology used to build it. When using the traditional method, you have to wait at least several months. When using the prefabricatedóin at least a few weeks. But a company from Russia only needed 24 hours.

Admittedly, the house is not big. But still, the timing of its creation may surprise. The whole robót was made by a 3D printer specially developed by Apis Cor. Workers only had to paint the walls, install windows and doors, roofing and thermal insulation, and connect the electrical system. They also got to install the equipmentóinside the building.

The price for a building created in this way was less than $11,000ów. Windows and doors reportedly cost the most. At least that’s what Apis Cor reports. Although company representatives say that the price can still be dropped if inferior materials are usedów. Of course, it does not include the cost of the land.

The company has slightly changed its approach to printing large objectów. In most 3D printers, the head is mounted on a gantry. Therefore, the printer itself so far had to be larger than the object it printed. Of course, the construction of the printer itself can be made collapsible, but Apis Cor used a different solution. It created a mobile 3D printer with a head on an extendable arm.

Such a printed house in no way ródiffers from a building built using traditional methods. Company representatives assure that they can build a building of any shape. The house in the demonstration video shown below was built in sub-zero temperatures, so an insulated tent was needed. The printer requires a minimum of five degrees Celsius above the dash. The durability of the structure is estimated at 175 years.
