Europe's first livable 3D printing house delivered to its tenants

In Eindhoven, the Netherlands, the first tenants of the house, which was built entirely with 3D printing, started to live in their homes.

Retired couple Elize Lutz and Harrie Dekkers, living in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, were the residents of the house, which was built entirely with 3D printing for the first time in Europe.
Within the scope of the project jointly developed by Eindhoven Technical University, Eindhoven Municipality and Construction companies, the world’s first 3D printer “habitable house” was built.
Elize Lutz and her husband Harrie Dekkers, who spent their first days at home, stated that they will settle in the house they started to use partially as of August.
Emphasizing that the first detail noticed at home is sound insulation, Lutz said, “Sound and heat insulation is very good.” said. Lutz used the phrase “Very beautiful” for the house, while his wife Dekkers said “It makes you feel safe just like a shelter”.
Prof. Dr. Theo Salet stated that the house produced with a 3D printer was built with 30 percent less material. It was noted that the printing phase of the walls of the 94 square meter house, which was manufactured in a factory in Eindhoven, took 120 hours.
It was stated that the roof and windows of the house, which was brought to the shore of the Beatrix canal in the Bosrijk region, were then transported by van.
It was noted that the house built with a three-dimensional printer is more expensive than those built using the normal method. In recent years, projects using 3D prints continue to increase in the world, especially after the houses built in France and the USA, partially with 3D printing.
