The first ever 3D-printed residential home was built on-site in just 24 hours in the town of Stupino, near Moscow in Russia last December. Having a cylindrical shape and consisting of a hallway, a bathroom, a living room and a kitchen, this 38 m2 (406 ft2) house had a total cost of $10,134, or $267 per m2. Apis Cor., the Russian company that constructed it, claims that it can last up to 175 years and that a simpler house (ex. a square one) could cost only $223 per m2 ($68 per ft2).
