Apis Cor, a Russian 3D printing company, and Sunconomy, a US construction company, have received approval to build their first 3D printed concrete house in Lago Vista, Texas. The single-family houses of the “Genesis model” are built in a single day, while practically no waste is generated on the construction site. The structures are very sustainable and can withstand winds of up to 220 mph from an EF 5 tornado and earthquakes above 8.0.
The collaboration between Sunconomy and Apis Cor printed a full-fledged house in Stupino, Russia for the first time. The concrete mix was adjusted for the cold climate using a loose dry insulation material for part of the household and polyrethane filler composition.
