First on-site printed house

Apis Core reports: [edited]

The first house printed using mobile 3D printing technology has been built in Stupino town, Moscow region. Printing of self-bearing walls, partitions and building envelope were done in less than a day. The area of the printed building is 38m². The interior includes a hall, a bathroom, a living room and a compact functional kitchen.

The construction cost of the printed house amounted to $10,134. 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.

As the printer prints self-bearing walls and partitions, it saves up to 70% compared to traditional construction techniques.
