Building a home can be extremely expensive, taking months or even years to complete. But imagine if constructing a house were as easy as just pressing “print.”
Apis Cor, a company with a huge focus on 3D printing, has created an entire home using their technology in just 24 hours at the cost of $10,000.
The company, which has offices in both San Francisco and Russia, developed the sleekly designed house in just a day. Their next step? Using the technology to help people in tough living situations afford housing. Because the process is quick and fairly cheap, it could provide a real boon to people in need. Considering the heightened rent many of us are seeing, a 3D printed home is starting to seem like a much better option.
About Apis Cor.
We are the first company to develop a mobile construction 3D printer which is capable of printing whole buildings completely on site.
Also we are people. Engineers, managers, builders and inventors sharing one common idea – to change the construction industry so that millions of people will have an opportunity to improve their living conditions.
On the six continents of Earth there are families which cannot afford to buy or build a house. A good accommodation is costly. And waiting for it to get construction takes more than a single month.
So it used to be. Today – it’s different.
Today we have a 3D printing technology, new building materials and a mobile 3D printer to build affordable, eco-friendly houses within a single day, capable of lasting up to 175 years.
Construction industry is a sluggish machine. But we are ready to readjust it and continue working until everyone is able to afford a place to live.
