The Japanese company Serendix has developed a 3D-printed tiny house that costs no more than a mid-range car. The backgrounds.
In recent years, the prices of many goods and services have increased. In addition to the current inflation, the shortage of skilled workers also plays a crucial role in many regions. It is often the case that citizens can no longer afford certain things. Building or buying a house presents a special challenge.
Due to the increased property prices, there is often little budget left to build a house. That’s why some companies around the world are already working on so-called tiny houses from 3D printers. The Japanese company Serendix recently demonstrated what is already possible with technology today.
Tiny house from the 3D printer promises space for two people
The company developed and printed a small house for the price of a mid-size car. At a cost of 35,214 euros, an approximately 50 square meter building was created that has a bathroom, a bedroom, a living room and a kitchen. The concept is called Fujitsubo and offers enough space for two people.
The price comes about because the provider requires fewer skilled workers to print the design. A 3D printer does this completely automatically and without the need for a break. In addition, the individual parts of the living unit can be easily put together. Only the electrical and water systems require a specialist.
From production to acceptance in under two days
The construction of the house took a total of 44 hours. However, transporting the individual parts seems to be a little more difficult. It happened again and again that wall fragments broke. Nevertheless, in the end there was a safe and compact construction on the company’s farm. In this way, Serendix is also reacting to the rising prices in its home country of Japan.
Prices for apartments have also recently risen dramatically in the Asian country. With its 3D houses, Serendix wants to offer an alternative that costs no more than a mid-range car. The concept seems to have potential. However, it is questionable whether we will soon be able to purchase a similar house here given the bureaucratic hurdles in Germany.
