This Kickass House Was 3D Printed in 24 Hours andamp It Only Costs 7 Lakhs

We can now have a glimpse at what a 3D printed house will look like thanks to a team out of Russia, who managed to build a house in under 24 hours. Apis Cotr, is a 3D printing specialist company from Russia and San Francisco and they’ve achieved this marvel for the fraction of the price of a traditional house.

3D printing usually involves the creation of objects such as toys, hardware prototypes and jewellery but it has also been used in the medical field for printing prosthetics for handicapped patients. Impressively, Apis Cotr used a mobile 3D printer to create this house in the middle of nowhere. Normally, 3D printing a home entails creating floors, walls and other parts off-site and constructing the building later.

“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 company said.

As the construction of the building is completed, the mobile 3D printer is removed with a crane, followed by adding a roof to the building. Once the roof is installed, the crew can now start fitting in interior fixtures.  Nikita Chen-yun-tai, the inventor of the mobile printer and founder of Apis Cor, explained his desire is “to automate everything”.

“When I first thought about creating my machine, the world has already known about the construction 3D printing,” he explained

“But all printers created before shared one thing in common – they were portal type. I am sure that such a design doesn’t have a future due to its bulkiness. So I took care of this limitation and decided to upgrade a construction crane design.”

He adds: “We want to help people around the world to improve their living conditions. That’s why the construction process needs to become fast, efficient and high-quality as well. For this to happen we need to delegate all the hard work to smart machines.”

This 3D printed house is estimated to last for at least 175 years and the company claims that a house of this size will cost only INR 7 Lakhs to build.
