In the Russian Arctic, the first building was built using a 3D printer, as reported by TASS with reference to Gazprom Neft. This method allows you to build houses one and a half times faster and 30% cheaper than with the traditional method.
3D printing technologies make it possible to make the construction and operation of buildings more environmentally friendly, increase the speed of construction of production facilities and at the same time reduce costs. We see prospects in the use of construction 3D printing, including in the Arctic regions. Despite its futuristic nature, the building organically blended into the natural landscape of the Ob pier.

A foam concrete building appeared in the city of Labytnangi, Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug. During its construction, a Russian-made 3D printer was used, which made it possible to create not only walls, but also furniture and decor elements. Inside the building is decorated with drawings with elements of ornaments of the indigenous peoples of the North.
The high energy efficiency of the materials made it possible to optimize the energy consumption of the building: it does not require heating in spring and autumn, and the room maintains a comfortable temperature and air humidity. For the winter season, an electric heating system is installed here.
Two years ago we wrote about the first in Europe a couple who moved into a fully 3D printed house.
