Mashable: How One Home Was 3D-Printed in 24 Hours

The home was built by Apis Cor in Russia for just over $10,000.

The 3D-printing trend is now breaking into the housing industry. Apis Cor, a 3D-printing company, built a 400-square-foot home in 24 hours for just over $10,000.

The home, which is located in Russia, is the first residential house to be printed. It was created using a mobile printer on-site, with its walls, partitions and building envelope printed using a concrete mixture. Fixtures like windows and furnishings were later added, as well as a coat of paint. Apis Cor says the house can last up to 175 years.

In a statement Apis Cor’s website, founder Nikita Chen-yun-tai said, “We want to change public views that construction can’t be fast, eco-friendly, efficient and reliable at the same time. Our goal is to become the biggest international construction company to solve problems of accommodation around the globe.”
