This Home Was Built by a 3-D Printer

BY KATHY PIERRE CURRENT March 07, 2017

The start up Apis-Cor out of Northern California has just printed the first residential home constructed by a 3D printer. That’s right. A real house made for actual people to live in was built from the ground up by a giant 3-D printer, which is insane. But what’s even crazier is that the concrete structure only took 24 hours to assemble and includes a bathroom, a living room and a compact functional kitchen. You can watch the full construction of the home below.

Check it out! #apiscor has printed the first residential house! Construction is based on Apis Cor 3D printing technology — a unique equipment, which has no analogues in the world today: mobile construction 3D printer and automatic mix and supply unit. Printing of self-bearing walls, partitions and building envelope were done in less than a day: pure machine time of printing amounted to 24 hours. The area of the printed building is 38 m². Design of the single-story residential house is rather unusual. This project was selected specifically, as one of the main purposes of this construction is to demonstrate the flexibility of equipment and diversity of available forms. The house can be of any shape, including the familiar square shape. On the inside the printed house is no different from an ordinary one — cozy and comfortable. House interior includes a hall, a bathroom, a living room and a compact functional kitchen with the most modern appliances from Samsung company. The construction cost of the printed house amounted to $10134! This cost includes all the works that were done to make a complete house: work and materials for the construction of foundation, roof, exterior and interior finishing works, installation of heat insulation of walls, windows, floors and ceilings. 3D printers are entering the global market and construction sites worldwide. The future is now.#3dprint #3d #3dprinter #3dprinting #tech #techno #technology #news #science #future #robot #robotics #construction #building #buildings #architecture #architects
