This House Was 3D-Printed In Just 24 Hours For Less Than $11k

Typically, building a house takes months. Yet a San Franciso-based company managed to build one in just 24 hours.

Located in Russia, the 400 square foot home was built by Apis Cor. The company specializes in 3D printing, and thanks to their mobile construction 3D printer that is capable of printing buildings, they managed to print a whole house in just 24 hours! Despite the printer only needing a day to build the home from a concrete mixture, it is predicted to last up to 175 years… But that’s not even the best part. The price of this modern 3D printed house? Just over $10,000! You can read more about it on the Apis Cor website.

35m2 or round perfectness ideal for students and young couples for the price of a car! It is the future of housing...Love it! i guess it can be printed in any desired shape... <3

Yes and no. They're limited by the printing mechanism which in this case swings about a pivot. So the machine can only print a certain distance from its pivot. Also, should anyone wish for sloping walls, the walls could incline inward or outward to a (probably very slight) degree. Mostly, though, this device is going to be able to create small round abodes.

First of all - great idea, great result! Considering using this for my project. On second place, when the Imperial system will be abandoned and burned? What kind of obsolete people still measure with their feet?! It is so annoying that the whole world need to put up with this nonsense because few countries insist using old measurement system! :@

I'm not sure who is insisting. As an American, I hate using the Imperial System. It makes little sense and, as you stated, isn't what the rest of the world uses. However, I don't know how the task of "switching over" would be possible. It would have to be a gradual, side-by-side process for many years until a new generation could just grow up with metric. We grow up with it because that's what is taught in schools. It isn't the people's choice.

I find that anything that has to do with 3D printing of homes & bridges fascinating ! In China , a 3D 4300 sq. ft., two story, home was completed in 45 days. https://3dprint.com/138664/huashang-tengda-3d-print-house/ It was a dichotomy to me that I just finished a book on the Oakridge Manhattan Delete repeated word & prefab homes were put together in 30 minutes (200 a day)& that was in 1942.
