3D printed homes from PassivDom are now available on demand for customers in the Ukraine and the US.

As a promise, The company said the first of these houses will be delivered later this year.

PassivDom is an Ukrainian technological startup “Passive House Ukraine”. The company produces autonomous self-learning module houses with the help of 3D Printing. Moreover, These modular homes are easy to transport and install anywhere; A PassivDom house can be set up in the middle of the woods, on top of a mountain, or in any remote location you feel like running into — even in Arctic climate conditions —.

Most noteworthy, the module uses only ecologically clean solar energy for all occupants’ needs; from climate control (heating and cooling), to water generation; same with air quality and oxygen control. The house itself also produces electricity for all household appliances. so it means you can live completely off the grid, with zero utility bills!

3D printing an entire module house takes 8 hours

Looking inside a ModulOne house:

According to PassivDom, house foundations are 3D printed in a period of eight hours. A 7-axis 3D printing robot prints the floor, roof, and 20-centimeter-thick walls of the house; Raw material for 3D printing is a mix of Carbon fiber, polyurethane, basalt, resins, and fiberglass.

Next, the windows, doors, plumbing, and electrical systems are added manually, taking around 24 hours to totally assemble it. Besides, the frame of the house is six times stronger than steel and includes outer components like tempered glass, aluminum windows and doors.

While on the subject and Talking about the building process: “In the first step, robots mix components in composite with high thermal and resistant characteristics. That is how we get extremely durable construction along with maximum warmth. A composite is extruding layer by layer as in a ‘usual’ 3D-printing”.

PassivDom’s high-tech factories are located in Ukraine and California. Therefore, these are the headquarters where 3D design for module houses take place.

3D printed houses are available to pre-order, with prices starting at $32,000

PassiveDom also allows customers to choose depending on their needs. Their products varying in both size and level of autonomy, but there are three main options offered:

First of all, you can choose a very basic module with built-in electrical wiring, heating and ventilation for only €29,900, but no furniture, appliances or kitchen and bathroom would be included. Second is The Standard module; for €39,900 it comes with all of those things, plus an alarm system and cloud-based video surveillance. However, it still needs to be connected to power, water and sewage lines, so it’s not fully autonomous. Finally, there’s a €59,900 Autonomous option that includes solar panels, batteries, inverters, and an independent water supply, plus you can control all these appliances and power systems via smartphone.

Here are some pictures of the PassivDom’s ModulOne and ModulTwo Houses:

Do you want to live a few days in PassivDom? the company will shortly offer modules for ‘test drivers’, so people can live in them for a few days and offer feedback.
