At the Salone del Mobile exhibition in Milan, the first house in the European Union, created by the method of three-dimensional printing, which is really fit for life, was demonstrated. Let it be a prototype, but it is a complete construction, “turnkey”, where it remains only to arrange furniture and other interior elements – and you can celebrate a housewarming. The project is called “3D Housing 05” and it is designed to demonstrate the advantages of 3D printing for small-scale building.
The authors of the project found a compromise, they did not entrust all work to robots, but human labor in the construction of such housing is minimized. In fact, it boils down to final finishing of premises and installation of communications, but the foundation, walls and ceiling are printed by a building robot. It was designed by CyBe Construction, a manipulator with a nozzle for feeding a cement mixture on a mobile chassis.
The price of the robot is $ 432,000 and the payback is provided only through mass exploitation, so it was designed to print buildings of arbitrary architecture so that it could build as many houses as you like. Not more than one floor, but any area. The exhibition features a building of 100 square meters. m., which has a bedroom, living room, kitchen, dining room and a spacious bathroom.
An additional bonus – the robot can print elements of landscape design, create a simulation of tiles on the terrace or other pattern. It looks very nice, not least due to small strokes, like flowers in pots, but the question remained behind the scenes: what is the price of such a house? However, before the appearance of mass, not experimental, printed houses, this is not so important.js.src = “&version=v2.8”; 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));
