The World’s First 3D-Printed Office
3D-Printing has been a recent development in technology, yet the advancements have been in the form of leaps and bounds. The exploration of possibilities using 3D-Printing reached new heights when innovation was given a new home in the UAE during the early summer of 2016. The Dubai Future Foundation is hosted at this 3D-Printed facility, and serves as an office full of creative minds and innovative ideas.
This structure covers 250 square meters and was printed in a surprising 17 days by using a 6 × 36 × 12m 3D-Printer that was monitored by only one person. The printer used layers of cement mixture to print out various sections of the structure which were then put together to complete the building.
A total of 18 people, including electricians and mechanical engineers were part of the team that brought this project to its completion. This project cost $140.000 in its entirety; that is almost half of what the traditional construction would be.
We, at 3Dinova take inspiration from such steps taken by our country and would like to plant the seed of innovation in the minds of our future generations. By incorporating 3D-Printers and exploring their applications in educational institutes, we will help cultivate the minds of tomorrow and ensure a creative and innovative environment as they educate themselves.
