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. 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.
They already finished the software for their first and smallest unit, the P3 concrete printer, BetAbram plans to begin taking orders for the 2 x 3 x 4m (6.5′ x 10′ x 13′) machine. The approximate price for this potentially 3D house printer is between €12,000 and €16,000 (~$16,300 to ~$21,700). The P2 printer will measure 2 x 12 x 6m (6.5′ x 39′ x 19.5′) and will be sold for around €20,000 (~$27,200) and the P1 will measure 2 x 16 x 9m (6.5′ x 52.5′ x 29.5′) and will be sold for around €32,000 (~$43,500). All the machines are limited to 2 meters in height but they can easily be moved up to the next floor when the first is completed and sufficiently dried up.
We have already constructed all three types, but we are still developing software for BetAbram P2 and P1 printers. 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 BetAbram team explains.
