Are 3D-printed homes our future?

A San Francisco-based company has built a 3D-printed home in a day for less than $15,000.

The home was put together using the latest 3D-printing technology at one of its facilities in Stupino, near Moscow.

Using a concrete mixture, Apis Cor along with the Russian PIK group report that they have produced a 38 square metre building with a kitchen, bathroom and living room.

According to their website, the “pure machine time of printing amounted to 24 hours”, plus a set up time of half an hour.

Apis Cor’s distinctive home is expected to last about 175 years. There was some follow-up work required after printing with windows, furnishings and a paint job. (Photo: Apis Cor).
