The ACTLAB experimental architecture laboratory at Politecnico di Milano University is presenting a preview of its Trabeculae Pavilion at Made Expo 2017, an experimental architecture that fuses 3D Printing with biomimetic research. The innovative prototype of lightweight architecture, which demonstrates the revolutionary potential of computational design and 3D printing for constructions, will be on display at the BSmart! area, in Pavilion 10 of Fiera Milano-Rho,

Apis Cor 3D prints first on-site house in Russia in one day for $10,134 3D Printing Processes

The first house in Russia built using 3D printing technology has been completed in Stupino, in the Moscow region of Russia. Russian house 3D printing pioneers Apis Cor in cooperation with PIK proceeded to print the building using a mobile 3D printer. Construction took place at the Apis Cor company’s test facility in the town of Stupino. Printing of self-bearing walls, partitions and building envelope were done in less than a day: pure machine time of printing amounted to 24 hours.

CNN Just Published a Report on House 3D Printing (and Cities Too) 3D Printing Processes

It’s always nice when the generalist media cover 3D printing, in any of its forms, in a positive way. After they stopped blabbering about how 3D printing is dead, generalist media are once again finding an interest for 3D printing and 3D printing companies. It just happened with CNN and house 3D printing – or maybe we should say “city 3D printing” since when the generalist media talks about stuff they do it “extra large”.
