In conjunction with PIK, the Apis Cor company built the first ever 3D-printed house in less than 24 hours, according to the company's website. The roughly 410-square-foot house stands in Russia, and features all the nuts and bolts of a traditional home.

Construction costs estimated roughly $10,000, which includes the installation of the foundation, roof, inner and outer finishing, wall insulation, windows, floors and ceilings.

Some may express concerns over the durability of a house built from 3D printing, but Apir Cor claims that the house can last up to 175 years. As for the house's composition, mineral plaster of white cement and ball-shaped marble and granite crumbs serve as an additional layer of insulation for the cold winter months.

Apis Cor founder, Nikita Chen-yun-tai, said "We want to change public views that construction can't be fast, eco-friendly, efficient and reliable at the same time."

Apis Cor, according to Mashable, has claimed to be the first company to have developed a 3D printing device that can construct buildings on-site. Previous residential buildings using similar technology have used off-site printers.
