endless building

Little by little 3D printing is being developed so that every day it reaches more sectors of the market. One of the best welcoming of this type of new technology is the construction sector, where we are getting used to seeing real works of art whose design can be more than interesting for certain sectors. On this occasion I want to present you the proposal that comes to us at the hands of a Dutch architect who shows us how the creation of an endless building manufactured using 3D printing.

The architect in particular is Janjaap Ruijssenaars, belonging to the architecture studio Universo Arquitectura in Amsterdam, which has just presented what a building of around 1.100 square meters would look like that, as you can see in the images, would stand out for having a Moebius strip shape and would have been built using a massive D-Shape printer. According to statements by the architect who created this work:

It is like a normal printer, instead of depositing ink on a sheet of paper, we deposit a liquid on a sheet of sand, which solidifies where the liquid was placed.


As for the printer referred to by the Dutch architect, tell you that it is a model designed by the Italian engineer Enrico Dini capable of progressively superimposing thin layers of material printing material up to six meters long and six meters wide. As a detail, tell you that this project was presented for the first time back in 2013 although until now they have been looking for partners to get it built.

Curiously, the initial idea of ​​the creators of the project was to build it according to the most traditional ways followed by this guild, after all these years the possibility of using a 3D printer to be able to follow the instructions of the architect responsible for it to the letter since its operation adapts much better to your requirements.
