First residential house has been printed!

Home / First residential house has been printed!

The first house printed using mobile 3D printing technology has been built in Stupino town, Moscow region. The Apis Cor and PIK companies have successfully completed the project which was announced in December 2016.

 

The house was constructed using a combined mobile 3D printer and automatic mix and supply unit, developed specifically by Apis Cor. With a form similar to that of a tower crane, the printer was able to construct the building from both the inside and outside, incredibly completing the entirety of the load-bearing walls, partitions and building envelope in a single day.

 

According to the team, the unique design of the residential structure “was selected specifically, as one of the main purposes of this construction is to demonstrate the flexibility of equipment and diversity of available forms.”

 

 

Finishes, windows and insulation were installed and applied after the printing of the core structure, provided by third party suppliers. The printing process is flexible enough to allow for the various installations and fittings, adapting to required shapes.

 

One of the most notable aspects of the project is its cost-effectiveness, with construction costs totalling $10,134 or approximately $275 per square metre. These numbers account for the entire scope of work and materials required to erect a house, including the foundation, roof, exterior and interior finishes, and insulation.

 

 

3D printing is really something incredible! Who knows where else it could take us. Watch the YouTube video here.

7 Reasons to Use Direct Mail

1. THE MAIL MOMENT
Direct mail enters an individual’s home and is consumed on a one-to-one basis. This gives you much more time with your customer, time to engage them in a relaxed environment
at a time of their choosing.

2. SENSORY EXPERIENCE
The physicality of a mailing adds another dimension to the brand experience. Using your customers’ senses, you can stimulate and entertain, getting them to reassess your
brand and drive response.

3. PRECISION TARGETING
Direct marketing works best when it’s made relevant for the recipient, with tailor-made content appealing directly to the consumer. New digital printing technology can make this
personalisation even easier.

4. MAKE PEOPLE ACT
Direct mail is the most likely form of communication to get a response from a customer, with the cost of every response
measured with accuracy. As it’s a tangible object, DM is also likely to hang around.

5. EFFECTIVENESS
Reports have demonstrated the enduring effectiveness of direct mail, with the Direct Mail Association stating 65% of consumers
of all ages have made a purchase as a result of direct mail.

6. GET CREATIVE
Direct mail is unique in that mailings can be produced in a wide variety of formats, using different shapes, sizes, colours and materials to create a surprising and memorable brand experience that will stay in the home for weeks and even months.

7. INTEGRATION
Adding direct mail to an integrated campaign can raise the campaign’s effectiveness by up to 62% (BrandScience), while bridging technologies such as QR codes and augmented reality make it simple for consumers to go from print to digital.
