Succeeded building a whole house in extremely cold Russia with a 3D printer in just 24 hours
Attempts to output buildings with 3D printers are being conducted around the world, but Russia's 3D printer development company "Apis Cor"Brought a 3D printer to the construction site, succeeded in 3D printing of the building without unnecessary fully automated day.
The first on-site house has been printed in Russia | Apis Cor. We print buildings
Apis Cor's unique 3D printer that can output the whole building as it is at the construction site is explained in the following movie.

A yellow building to be built in the extremely cold area of Russia where snow is piled up.
This is a concrete house built with a 3D printer in just one day.
Attempts to create buildings using 3D printers have been done so far.
However, in most cases, a method of printing out a part of a house and assembling it was adopted.
In addition, it is common to use huge 3D printers installed indoors in order to make a part of an assembled housing ......
The output "box" was carried to the site and it was necessary to reassemble it.
However, since Apis Cor's 3D print house prints out locally, there is a big advantage that assembly work is unnecessary.
A special 3D printer developed by Apis Cor that enabled 3D printing at the building site of the building.
It is designed to rotate the print head that outputs building materials.
Apis Cor's 3D printer has a total arm length of 4 meters and a height of 1.5 meters. It weighs 2 tons and is very compact. Legs and arms extend and contract as necessary, "Printing" buildings with a maximum height of 3.1 meters, arm lengths of up to 8.5 meters, and a maximum height of 3.3 meters It is possible.
Also, a mixer that mixes concrete for building is built in the cylinder. Although it is a compact machine, it can output buildings of up to 100 square meters a day.
It seems that Apis Cor is building a building. Because the arm rotates, it is also easy to output curved walls that are difficult in common houses.
Compact 3D printers can be transported by truck.
It can be assembled in just 1 hour and you can start construction work.
Since Apis Cor's 3D printer can output the whole building on site, the work of building the frame is completely unnecessary and completely automatable.
Compared to conventional manufacturing methods where teamwork of building workers is required, speed, construction period is faster and cost advantages are also great.
Of course there is no problem in strength either.
The experiment of Apis Cor building houses in just one day took place in Moscow, Russia where one side was covered with snow.
The temperature is minus 35 degrees.
We can output concrete materials at 5 degrees, so it was said that it was solved using a tent.
According to Apis Cor, if the composite resin material currently under development is completed, it will be possible to print the house 3D at any time of the year anywhere in winter or summer.
Plaster (plaster) is used for the exterior walls and interior, making it easy to paint. Mineral plaster also functions as insulation.
KOROED interior materials have high adhesion and moisture permeability, which means that they are ideal for finishing work.
Although it is a flat roof, it has enough snow resistance.
She can process the sheet because it is flat, covering the roof covered with polymer of LOGICROOF, it can maintain durability.
Insulation board based on hard polystyrene is stretched on the wall surface and gaps are also filled with rock wool powder.
Moreover, by covering with foam insulation material of polyurethane, high heat insulation and airtightness are realized.
Fabrika Okon double glazed windows installed.
The indoor environment will not change from general concrete houses.
A building built by Apis Cor in the test is a flat store with a floor area of 38 square meters.
Construction cost is 11, 134 dollars (about 1.15 million yen) and it is cheap.
With a squared unit price of 275 dollars (about 31,000 yen)
This building cost includes all the basic parts of the foundation, the roof, the interior and exterior finish, the wall, the window, the floor and the ceiling, and compared with the general box-shaped housing made by the existing construction method, the unit price It is cheap at 223 dollars (about 25,000 yen), and 45% can reduce construction costs.
Also, because of the unique three-dimensional structure of 3D printers, we can reduce the amount of materials by 70% compared with general construction method, so it can be said to be economy and ecology.
The 3D print house of Apis Cor can dramatically shorten the construction period because it can automatically create the basic building of the building in just one day. If it is put to practical use, it seems to demonstrate great power not only for general housing but also for the construction of temporary housing in the disaster area.
