Could 3D-printed housing become the norm in years to come?
If Apis Cor’s new build is anything to go by, printed homes could end up being a normal, everyday sight sooner rather than later. Recently, the San Francisco-based startup 3D-printed an entire home for a Russian town — in less than 24 hours flat. Using a mobile 3D printer, the company was able to print everything from the concrete walls to the partitions and building envelope. The pieces were then all manually painted while workers also installed the roof, wiring and insulation. And though the results are humble at just 400 square feet, the tiny home cost only $10,134 USD in all — and the door and windows took up the biggest chunks of the budget.
