A residential building built using 3D printing technology has been commissioned for the first time in the United States under a charity program to support the poor.

According to CNN, the building was erected in the vicinity of Williamsburg (Virginia) on the initiative of the charity Habitat for Humanity.

One-storey house with an area of more than 110 sq. m. m with three bedrooms and two bathrooms was built of concrete using a huge 3D printer. The device took only 12 hours to build the foundation and walls.

The owners of the house were a woman with a 13-year-old son, who had previously lived in an apartment in a multi-storey building. The house was sold for a mortgage on preferential terms provided to the poor under the Habitat for Humanity program, its final cost is not given.
