AI SpaceFactory develops construction technologies that will enable the expansion of human life on and beyond Earth.
the future of living on earth
nasa-tested technology brought to this planet
Experience Tera >
Our 3D printed Earth habitat TERA is the most advanced, sustainable building ever conceived. Built with our NASA award winning 3D printing technologies and innovative materials, TERA is light years ahead of any known form of construction. TERA’s exterior shell is renewable and recyclable, minimizing environmental impact without compromising comfort and performance. With every TERA we build, we refine our technologies here on Earth, so that we can expand human life on the Moon and Mars. The result: a simpler, more sustainable solution for building on this planet that simultaneously advances the technologies for living on another.

TERA was born out of MARSHA – AI SpaceFactory's NASA-award-winning design and prototype for a 3D printed Mars habitat. The prototype was printed nearly autonomously in 2019 within a 30-hour construction window.
Our 3D print technology uses a recyclable biopolymer composite which outperformed concrete in NASA’s strength, durability, and crush testing. ASTM lab tested and certified to be two to three times stronger than concrete in compression, our space-grade material is also five times more durable than concrete in freeze-thaw conditions.
climate-specific adaptations built to last
Starting 2020, AI SpaceFactory will embark on a multi-year pilot program to build TERAs in locations across the US and globally.
