IIT-Madras startup Tvasta has built India’s first 3D printed house. It was inaugurated on the IIT Madras campus on Tuesday. The 1BHK house has a built-up area of 600 square feet, has a bedroom, a hall and a kitchen. The entire house was designed using software and printed using concrete 3D printing technology.

Using Tvasta's technology a new house can be built in 5 days against 4-5 months in conventional mode. Further, the cost of the house is reduced by around 30% and life of the building can exceed 50 years.



Earlier in October 2018, the 3D Printing startup has had successfully built India's first 3D Printed Structure -- A 3D room module.




Tvasta also made India’s first Concrete 3D Printer, an avant-garde system capable of generating myriads of architectural and constructional requirements. The startup has been recognized by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) as a part of the Make In India plan, along with being a part of the CIIE ShelterTech accelerator by IIM Ahmedabad.

Concrete 3D printing is an automated manufacturing method for constructing three dimensional real-life structures (at all realizable scales). The technique utilizes a concrete 3D printer which accepts a computerized three-dimensional design file from the user and fabricates a 3D structure in a layer-by-layer manner by extruding a specialized type of concrete specifically designed for the purpose.

Tvasta is an IIT M Alumni startup found by three founders namely Adithya, Vidyashankar and Parivarthan . Our founders initially established the 3D Printing Club of IIT Madras in Centre For Innovation (CFI) to build innovative products using 3D Printing and to spread awareness about this technology. They graduated in 2016 and Tvasta was born from the passion that the founders possessed towards Design and 3D Printing.
