3D printing in architecture and design

The use of 3D printing in these sectors allows:

  • Model building and spatial development
  • Changes to designs to made easily
  • No need for further modelling

The only limitation that can be applied in modern architecture is the limitation of the designer’s imagination – and not the difficulty in selecting tools. Using 3D printing significantly simplifies and accelerates conceptual work. It makes even the most unusual of architectural ideas possible by making carefully crafted models of buildings and urban planning. 3D printing allows innovative ideas to be presented to potential investors or end users in a precise, aesthetic form that does not require any further processing.

Printing a design in 3D not only creates a realistic 3D model of the computer model in a short time, but also offers low cost of consumables (filaments). It is also possible to create complex shapes without the limitations of traditional manufacturing methods. 3D printers are used in prototyping innovative components or creating functional final pieces – decorative items, furniture and gadgets. However, this is not the end of the possibilities.
