• Architect from Holland uses 3D printing to construct building!


  • There simply is no denying the fact that the future of design and development of products lies in 3D printing. For the uninitiated, 3D printing allows designers to literally print out products including day-to-day stuff, like buildings! An architect in Holland has pioneered the effort of building structures using the 3D printing technique. Janjaap Ruijssenaars’ architectural brainchild is a building designed as a continuous loop. The technique of printing buildings is possible today, though concrete reinforcements will be added.

    Spread across an area of 1,000 square meters, the building will lead the way for more projects of its kind. The project will be executed with help from 3D printing expert Enrico Dini. According to Ruijssenaars, the method will also decrease the time taken to build substantially and could very well be the way we craft our homes in the future!
