The Town’s people from a twon outside of Moscow are facinated by a house that was made differently. This was made thanks to 3D printing.

The first 3D-Printed residential home, engineered by the tech startup Apis Cor, cost under 11,000 and less than a day to complete. To create the walls a mobile 3D printer was used. The 3D printer was then removed and a group of contractors gave the property its final touches, such as roof, windows and the interior details. 

Apis Cor aims to prove that this type of construction can be fast and eco-friendly. Making this type of construction efficient and reliable. 

Nikita Chen-yun-tai, Apis Cor’s founder and inventor of the mobile printer, said on the company’s website.

“We want to help people around the world to improve their living conditions…That’s why the construction process needs to become fast, efficient and high-quality as well. For this to happen, we need to delegate all the hard work to smart machines.”

The first example of this work is a cozy, 400-square-foot (37 square meters) home with an unusual, curved shape. The curved design of the home was chosen to demonstrate the 3D printer’s ability to print the construction material in any shape.

The inside of the house is built like any normal house. The home is also designed like a small studio, it has a hall, bathroom, living room and compact kitchen. Apis Cor has partnered with Samsung on the demonstration house; the electronics giant provided the home’s appliances, including a tv that has a curvature similar to those of the walls.  It is speculated that the house has a cost of about $11,000. In the end, the most expensive components were the home, the windows, and the doors. The company also guarantees that savings from 3D printing are guaranteed to be good.
