Europe's largest 3D printer literally printed a two-story house before our eyes

The Belgian construction company Camp C used the largest 3D printer in Europe to print a two-story house in one go. The dimensions of the printer are 9.75 x 9.75 m. In contrast to its many "brothers" as ink for printing, it uses a special concrete, specially designed for layering.

3D house construction technology has several advantages over the traditional one: in addition to much higher construction rates, it also allows significant savings in building materials and overall cost savings.

According to the project manager Marijka Aerts, instead of reinforcement, special fibers have been added to the concrete, and the need for formwork has also disappeared. As a result, the company saved about 60% of materials, time and money.

So far, this two-story house has an area of ​​almost 300 sq. m is more an experimental model than a ready-made building. Nevertheless, it can already be equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay, including solar panels and heated floors.
