3D-Printed House New York
You’ve probably seen pictures of SQ4D’s 3D-printed home in New York, but here’s a first look inside the 1,407-square-foot structure, complete with a 2.5-car detached garage. The footings, foundation, slab, and walls are all printed by a fully custom 3D printer, called the Autonomous Robotic Construction System, that had to be designed from the ground up. However, once things got going, the walls alone took 28-hours to print, while the entire home took 8-days to finish building.

When all was said and done, it came out to be roughly 50% cheaper overall to 3D-print a home, compared to using standard construction methods in Riverhead, New York, where construction crews need to tow in and stack blocks manually. Still interested? It’s up for sale at $299,999 USD on Zillow. More information here.

We instruct the machine to go around and follow your floor plan each pass as we go by. We’re constantly building up. We took the idea of a plastic 3D desktop printer and wanted to make it much larger and spit out concrete. We set tracks on each side of the structure where we plan to print. We set up our giant gantry, our large scale printer goes back and forth, extruding these layers one by one, stacking, building all your walls,” said Kirk Andersen, the director of operations for SQ4D.
