This incredibly cheap house was 3D printed in just 24 ho

An on-site house 3D printed in Russia offers a glimpse into what the future of construction might look like.

Apis Cotr, 3D printing specialists based in Russia and San Francisco, say the walls of the building were printed and painted in just 24 hours.

3D printing a home usually involves creating the parts off-site and constructing the building later, however, Apis Cotr uses a mobile printer to print their apartments on-site.

“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.

Once the house has been completed, the printer is removed with a crane-manipulator and presumably the roof is then added, followed by the interior fixtures and fittings.  

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 knew 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.”

The house can last up to 175 years and cost just $10,134 to build, the company added.


Brilliant uses of 3D printing 


1. A 3D baby scan for a blind mum-to-be:
A 3D cast of an ultra-sound scan enabled a blind mother to ‘see’ her unborn baby for the first time.
2. Homes in disaster zones:
A 40 foot-tall, 20 foot-wide printer can build structures layer by layer using dirt or clay. The ‘Big Delta’ printer could create homes quickly and energy-efficiently in disaster or war zones.
3. A wheelchair for a two-legged dog:
Tumbles the dog was born with only two legs, but he was was given a new lease of life when the Ohio University Innovation Center helped create a bespoke wheelchair to help him get around
4-A tortoise suffering from a painful disease that caused its shell to wear away was given a 3D printed prosthetic shell to protect it. The lightweight prosthetic shell attached using velcro.
5. A life-saving replica heart:A doctor at King’s College London used a 3D-printer to create a life-size plastic copy of a two-year-old’s heart. The model allowed surgeons to determine that they could successfully close the h***.
