First House Completed Using 3D Technology
Construction took place at the Apis Cor company’s test facility in Stupino, on the territory of the Stupino aerated concrete factory. Printing of self-bearing walls, partitions and building envelope were done in less than a day: the pure machine time of printing amounted to 24 hours.
After completing the wall structures, the printer was removed from the building with a crane-manipulator. The area of the printed building is 38sqm. The house interior includes a hall, a bathroom, a living room and a compact functional kitchen.
The design of the single-story residential house is rather unusual. This project was selected specifically, as one of the main purposes of this construction is to demonstrate the flexibility of equipment and diversity of available forms. The house can be of any shape, including the familiar square shape, because the additive technology has no restrictions on design of new buildings, except for the laws of physics. The project shows the potential of architectural solutions possible with 3D printing.
