BetAbram, a Krsko, Slovenia based company has designed and constructed three different types of BetAbram 3D printer capable of printing houses.
There's a lot you can do with a 3D printer. Imagine being able to use a 3D printer to build your entire house, now it is all possible. Architects in Amsterdam have started building what they say is one of the world's first full-sized 3D-printed houses in January 2014. In April a Chinese company has demonstrated a massive 3D printer that is capable of constructing 10 houses in less than 24 hours.
Now you can also add BetAbram 3D printers to the list. The BetAbram 3D printers are specially designed to build houses, says the BetAbram team. Currently the team has constructed three different versions of the 3D house printer: P1, P2 and P3. See the size comparison image below. Height of all printers is 2m, but you can print object much higher than that, says the team.
BetAbram told us that they are planning to release printer BetAbram P3, the smallest one in July/August 2014. And the price will be approximately 12,000€.
"We have already constructed all three types, but we are still developing software for BetAbram P2 and P1 printers." says BetAbram team. BetAbram says they have already printed a lot of small objects, miniature houses and sculptures. As to printing house, they are not there yet.
"We haven't build a real house yet, because P2 and P1 printer software is still under development. It will be ready in September 2014 along with P2 and P1 printers." the team explains.
Same as other 3D house printers, this technology could be used to provide affordable housing in impoverished parts of the world, or quickly create emergency shelter in natural disasters.

With a smaller "printer", they could print full size house bricks that click together in the style of lego :-)

@Dean I hope you are kidding. That is thousands of dollars in metal fabrication alone.

Based on what they showed, it is over priced by $11,000 if you ask me!

needs a bit better demonstration. like, a picture of a structure built with it. they only show first layers and a big thing of printing like with this is what it is printing with, hard to get the cement mix right.
