Revolutionary 3D-Printed House Takes Less than a Day to Build and Only Costs $10,000

A groundbreaking potential solution to homelessness and poverty is now a reality thanks to a company called Apis Cor. The company, based in Russia and San Francisco, has developed the capability to 3D-print an entire house in just 24-hours.

As the Telegraph reports, Nikita Chen-yun-tai, the inventor of the mobile printer and founder of Apis Cor, explained his desire is “to automate everything.”

“When I first thought about creating my machine the world has already knew about the construction 3D printing,” he explained

“But all printers created before shared one thing in common – they were portal type. I am sure that such a design doesn’t have a future due to its bulkiness. So I took care of this limitation and decided to upgrade a construction crane design.”

What sets Apis Cor’s product apart from the rest is that its mobile printing technology can print everything right on site. Prior to this method, portions of the house had to be made off-site and then transported. However, thanks to Apis Cor, that costly process is now a thing of the past.

“Printing of self-bearing walls, partitions and building envelope were done in less than a day: pure machine time of printing amounted to 24 hours,” the company said.

Once the printer finishes the house, it is removed with a crane and the roof is then added, followed by interior fixtures, fittings, and paint.

As ZeroHedge points out, the initial house consists of a hallway, bathroom, living room and kitchen and is located in one of Apis Cor’s facilities in Russia. The company has claimed that the house can last up to 175 years.

Apis Cor has claimed to be the first company to have developed a 3D printer than can print whole buildings on-site.

 

For now the technology is in its infancy, however in a few years, the deflationary pressures unleashed by Apis-Cor and its competitors could results in a huge deflationary wave across the construction space, and would mean that a house that recently cost in the hundreds of thousands, or millions, could be built for a fraction of the cost, providing cheap, accessible housing to millions, perhaps in the process revolutionizing and upending the multi trillion-dollar mortgage business that is the bedrock of the US banking industry.

This incredibly cheap and efficient home only costs $10,134.

    Watch cities start making laws against these things because who wants homeless people living next door to them in weird, futuristic houses they don’t quite understand? Anything that actually helps poor people is certain to get kneecapped in this hateful economy!

      The machine to build huts like that is potential cash-cow for them.Who do you place that order at? Seashore hut resorts, in the mountain campground, a fleet of Eco-floating self sufficient, self powered ,sea baring constructed vessel; vision it as a ball/sphere, two pieces put together to make a sphere. It molded with recycled materials to be Eco- friendly …..recycle rubber!. You know all those acres and acres of land piled so flipping high, some on fire past/and or present. oil sludge that nasty byproduct ..mold with it as a solution in the mixture in the hopper. Slap some solar panels and any other forms of power generation. part of the space program? Escape pods? Submarine pod vessels?Orbiting power generators? Lets list all possible ideas on an organized list. Might even be able to mount it on a pair of tank treads, Pod building a home out of them? Anyways enough of me for now. Peace.

    Great idea and massive potential. Just a sad fact we have so many homeless where it can be eliminated.

    The video says 38 square meters, which is 406 square feet! That doesn’t make any sense. A tiny house is around 500 square feet. This video is showing images that look like at least a thousand square feet. The average house is over 2000 square feet. This will never fly unless the sizes get larger. If you translate that 406 square feet to an average house size of 2000 square feet, what’s the cost then?? Probably around a hundred grand, and that’s the materials alone. What about the labor? This is the cost itself, so add the middlemen, sales agents, etc, etc, etc, you get at least a 150 K house, if they can even build one the size of an average home.

      It’s for the homeless.

    Build my house . . .

  • Boba Vette

    This is fantastic! at around 450sq feet this is the new way houses will be build.

    The finished “houses” are way TOO toxic for a human being to live in. Sorry!

      It’s made of concrete.
