This prototype was printed during Russia’s harsh winter in just 24 hours.
It’s the first printed house using 3D printing technology in such a little time. It took place in Stupino town at the Apis Cor company’s test facility. It cost over $10,000 to build. The area of the printed house is 38m2 .
,, 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. It means it’s time to talk about the new fantastic potential of architectural solutions.
The house was erected in the coldest time of the year. Winter has added complexity to the project participants, as the use of concrete mixture, is only possible at temperatures above 5° C. Although, the equipment itself is able to operate in temperatures down to minus 35° C. The problem was solved by setting up a tent which provided the required temperature. “ – said Apis Cor for ALL3DP
The developer Apis Cor was not working on this project alone. Six companies have joined together to inplement the project.
PIK COMPANIES GROUP, TECHNONICOL CORPORATION, BITEX REIBEPUTZ COMPANY, FABRIKA OKON COMPANY AND SAMSUNG ELECTRONIC CORPORATION with APIS COR as their leader.
Samsung Electronic Corportion provided high-tech appliances, such as a TV set with the same radius of curvature as a curved wall in the house.
The roof of the house in Stupino, in accordance with the architectural project, is flat. The solution proposed by the TechnoNICOL company can effectively withstand high snow loads and durability requirements.
The roofing carpet is made of LOGICROOF polymer membranes. The material has high performance and technological installation.
