Stylish, asymmetric floating house will be 3D-printed in 48 hours


The Czech Republic’s first 3D-printed house will go up next month, to demonstrate the speed and effectiveness of a construction technique that is claimed to be seven times faster and half the cost of building a brick house.


With three rooms and a floor area of 43 square meters (463 sq ft), the Prvok od Burinky home will be built layer-by-layer using a robot arm repurposed from the automotive industry. This arm will deposit a specially formulated concrete, with nano-polypropylene fibers, plasticizers and setting accelerators mixed in, at a rate of 15 cm (5.9 in) per second. Walls will be printed with inner and outer layers, and the middle will be presumably be filled with insulating material. Within 24 hours, this concrete will set to standard house foundation hardness, and after […]
