Enrico Dini’s D-shape printer

Professor Behrokh Khoshnevis has come up with a 3D printer concept so massive that it can print an entire 2,500 square foot home, and it can do it in just 24 hours. The printer consists of two crane-like arms and a crossbeam which houses the printhead. By printing super quick drying cement, professor Khoshnevis believes the printer would be capable of completing a two-story building in just under a day.

The company has claimed that the house can last up to 175 years.

The house consists of a hallway, bathroom, living room and kitchen and is located in one of Apis Cor's facilities in Russia.

As 3D printing begins to edge its way into sustainable housing designs and proposals, one can only wish for a crystal ball to look into the future and see what the long-term impact will be with these progressive architectural ideas. Currently, Sweden’s Belatchew Labs paints a very attractive picture with their vision of what 3D printing in construction, and through use of concrete as a material, could do with some prime real estate: the water.
