This company can 3D-print a house in 24 hours

Science
This building was 3D printed in just 24 hours and you can buy one just like it right now. If you live in California. [MUSIC] While other 3D printed buildings we've seen were printed on site mighty buildings, makes their houses in a factory and has them shipped a process that mighty buildings co founder Sam Rubin tells me Has its advantages. So with on site beograd, the setup time you've got carried on time that adds to the overall construction process. And generally most of the companies are doing on site or using some form of concrete. And so oftentimes you'll hear them say that they can print in 24 hours or 48 hours. But then you read the fine print and you read that it was done over a matter of days or weeks. What we're doing is because we have a unique material that curious, close to instantly, is that we can actually print a 350 square foot module in less than 24 hours. And that's actually 24 hours, not 24 hours over a matter of days or weeks. Makes>> the material mighty buildings uses has unique properties that allow it to be printed horizontally without support. One. One way to think about it is you know, when you go to the dentist and they use that UV curable material for fillings and everything, if you take that and then you combine that material with a bunch of mineral filler, you get it's basically it's synthetic stuff. Although these synthetic stone structures are a relatively new technology, Sam tells me they're built to last. So we've done extensive testing out past 30 some odd year and they perform very well. And so we've done that with UV aging we'll be doing some additional accelerated aging tests with ul was our certification partner to further demonstrate all that Of course, none of this would be possible without the printer itself. According to you, it's the world's largest light based printing system. And it's a big gantry system, which renamed the big the big g shines ultraviolet light onto the printing material as it prints to cure it almost instantaneously according to mighty building. Thanks this allows the printer to create complex shapes and structures that would otherwise require steel or concrete reinforcements. with our process. It's a zero waste production process. So it's a much more sustainable than traditional on site construction eliminates the out three to five pounds per square foot that normally goes to landfill. And part of that is that the 3d printing is just the first step. That's kinda another reason we're doing precision is that we have a very large gantry printer that can print everything from our panels to the full frame size volumetric models. But then we also have a secondary post processing system that leverages industrial robotic arms that have been proven out in the automotive and other industries. And so that's able to trim the material go from a raw print to a nice to stone finish. If something in between, as well as has the ability to mimic things like brick or siding. And eventually we're gonna have 80% automation of the construction process. Mighty buildings is offering a variety of different units for sale right now on their website. Though for right now they're only delivering to California. Mighty studio which is our single module and our smallest footprint about 300 square feet. That one we sell for 115,000 for just the unit, but again, that's California prices. warehousing is very expensive. And then the panel system goes up to three bedroom two bath for $285,000. Again just for the structure itself, but we also provide turnkey services. Throughly make life as easy as possible. If it's in another state, that's conversation we can have. We're not actually delivering outside of California yet. But that is we are looking to expand across the US and across the world. And we're developing a new fiber reinforced version of the material that actually has internally showing strength similar to steel. That's gonna allow us to produce the material usage, while also allowing us to move into multi-story units, something we're looking to do in the next couple years. Because we recognize to really address the affordability crisis, particularly in urban areas, we have to have that verticality. As always, thanks so much for watching. I'm your host, Jesse Orrel. Stay safe out there, What The Fam. [MUSIC]
