"Apis Cor is a Florida-based construction company that develops and manufactures proprietary 3D printing machines. It is currently raising funds for its mission of transforming the construction industry and helping companies increase their output and profitability. Apis Cor is looking to deliver a solution to meet this desperate need [of residential homes] with its 3D construction printing machines. Just as power tools like the electric drill transformed the construction industry by replacing hand tools, Apis believes it is delivering the next stage of construction through its 3D machines.

It gained recognition when in 2019 it built what remains the Guinness World Record’s largest 3D-printed building and won first place in a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) 3D-Habitat Challenge, building an autonomous 3D printing construction technology that could be applied to housing on Earth and Mars. The company has already received 18 paid pre-orders for its machines since the sales launch in January, bringing in $11.2 million in projected revenue, and Apis Cor anticipates this number will continue to grow."
