Prvok will soon become the first 3D-printed home in the Czech Republic, floating on its own pontoon, though it can be set up on land as well. Unlike other 3D-printed homes that take days to complete, this structure can be printed in just 48 hours, all the while saving up to 50% of the building costs of traditional structural costs. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.



It was created by designers Michal Trpak and the Erste group, with 3D printing of the prototype happening as we cover the story. The duo aim to change the construction industry forever by making custom homes and construction more affordable as well as less wasteful than regular methods. Most of the building process is completed by Scoolpt, a robotic arm used in auto manufacturing. This arm prints approximately 6-inches per second, for a total of 48 hours total to construct the 463-square-foot home.
