The Economist has a good article on the current state of 3D printing at 3D printing scales up. Having been privileged to have watched several technologies evolve from early stage clunkiness to significant economic and cultural impact this seems like something to watch. It’s still very early days for 3D printing. Looking at 3D printing in…

3D printed architecture is here. 260 million surfaces in 1 month

3.2 meters tall 6.8 meters long by 3.2 meters wide room printed completely by a 3D printer. It has 260 million surfaces. Weights in at 11 tons of sandstone but amazingly it only took 1 month to print and a single day to assemble. Hansmeyer and Dillenburger, both computational architects at the Swiss Federal Institute…
