3D Printing of Housing, Picking Up Speed, Notably Overseas

November 7th, 2017 Comments off

Sputnik3DPrintedHouseYouTubeDailyBusinessNewsMHProNewsUsing 3D printing technology in the construction sector has led to bridges, an office building and a laboratory in Dubai, a hotel and tiny houses, and even full-size homes and villages,” per 3DPrint.

In February, a group of European construction experts met in Copenhagen to discuss how 3D printing is changing construction, and came to the conclusion that Europe would become the leader in 3D printing construction over the next three to five years,” the 3D printing trade publisher stated, adding “Russia has also been in the 3D printing construction headlines for a house printed in just 24 hours, and a group of machining and 3D printing companies, called AMT-SPECAVIA, recently used a 3D printer to construct a residential house in Yaroslavl.”

The Daily Business News has been tracking the 3D printing of housing phenomenon for several years.

Per 3DPrint,The layers of the [Russian] house were printed at 10 mm high and 30 to 50 mm wide, and the walls were printed at up to 15 square meters an hour. One of the great benefits of 3D printed houses is the ability to use complex geometry to create features like arches and cylindrical structures.”

In addition,” the trade publisher said, ”the time from design to production is reduced up to 8-12 times; obviously, the high rate of speed at which the house was built is also a plus.”

Examples of Chinese 3D printed housing said to be able to withstand an 8.0 level earthquake is linked here.

Dutch and a previous Russian 3D printed home reports are as linked here.

Oleg Pertsovsky, director of operations for the Skolkovo Energy Efficient Technologies cluster, said in his native language the following translated quote, “Today, Russian developers are among the world leaders in 3D printing. In the Fund, AMT LLC is developing and commercializing a line of portal building printers: from small format (for printing small architectural forms) to large (capable of printing houses up to 3 floors high). Today “AMT” presented an impressive result of its innovative activity – a full-length residential building built for permanent residence. “Skolkovo” purposefully involves projects on construction 3D-printing. Support from Skolkovo will allow companies to get an additional impetus to development not only on the Russian market, but also on the world market.”

Note that the pricing on the Russian 3D tech needs to be clarified, which could be the subject of a follow up report.


That’s $36,000 plus shipping. While HUD Code homes are still a better cost per square foot, will growing demand reduce the price of such competitors? Isn’t that the lesson of production – more demand, more production, costs decline – with all products?


3D printing is just one of several emerging trends MHProNews has tracked, another one that bears a closer look is Amazon’s on-line sales of modular container housing. ## (News, Analysis.)

1,184 square feet, assembled in ten days for about $80,000.

Are these Russian made prefab homes ready to go mainstream?

Moscow-based firm Bio Architects, has unveiled the latest project in their DublDom prefabricated housing line up, which offers models between 280 and 1,400 square feet.

They come with a price range of between $23,000 and $100,000.

This model shown in the photo above came in at a final cost of five million rubles ($80,000 USD), with finishing, electricity, and engineering systems included.

Bio Architects has focused on keeping costs low, by using inexpensive materials like metal, barn board, and glass, which, in combination with large skylights, glass walls, and exposed beams provides a unique look and feel to the homes.

The DublDom line is produced in Kazan, which is a city in Southwest Russia, and Bio Architects reports that they are now accepting preorders from the U.S.


As Daily Business News readers are aware, foreign prefab manufacturers are making moves into other countries, including China and Spain-based firms teaming up to tackle the U.K. affordable housing crisis. That story is linked here. ##
