3D Print a Tiny Home in 24 Hours
San Francisco-based startup company built a house n Russia that puts a whole new twist on fast, cheap, tiny houses.
Apis Cor company managed to 3D-print an entire house in just 24 hours. Their printed house is a 400-square-foot home about the size of a standard hotel room, and was built in just a day, at a cost of slightly over $10,000.
The secret lies in 3D printing. The company used a mobile 3D printer to print out the house’s concrete walls, partitions and building envelope. Workers had to manually paint it and install the roofing materials, wiring, hydro-acoustic and thermal insulation, but that didn’t take much time.
The implications for these types of houses in America are incredible.
For people just starting out in life, for retirees, temporary housing in a disaster, and homeless communities, this could someday be a game changer for millions of people
The company uploaded a video of the process you can watch below. It even shows what the interior looks like with appliances, including a curved TV that fits the house’s curved wall, provided by Samsung. If Apis Cor does start 3D printing houses, owners can choose any shape they want and even choose to make one larger than this compact abode.
