3D printing in architecture

Since the advent of 3D printing in the architectural field, models for illustration of a project can be produced quickly and easily. With 3D printing, time and costs can be saved and both architect and customer benefit from a fast and detailed visualization.

But it doesn’t just have to be miniature sizes, larger prints are also possible. Nowadays, for example, entire houses made of concrete can be “extruded” directly on site. In addition, sustainable or “more exotic” materials can also be processed. In addition, 3D printing enables complex structures that would often not be possible with conventional construction methods.

Nevertheless, 3D printing in architecture is still in its infancy and further innovations are needed: Currently, the implementation of architectural 3D printing projects is relatively costly.
