If you are looking for a new space to work in then you should be able to get a new one with the help of a giant 3D printer that has the ability to build you a new office space.
While some people would have to go through architects, engineers and contractors to get a new office built, Dubai is able to 3D print them just like that.
A new innovation was revealed recently, the first ever office that was created with the help of 3D printing. It will be the new home of the Dubai Future Foundation.
The office was printed and finished within 17 days with the help of a cement mixture. It is different from the plastic material that is generally used by many desktop 3D printers. The printer that was used to build the office was 20 feet in height, the length is 120 feet and the width is 40 feet.
The new building is a one storey establishment with a total floor area of 250 square meters. Inside are a few offices, spaces for the desk of the staff as well as rooms that can be used for workshops.
According to officials of United Arab Emirates, the 3D printed building is fully functional. Further inspection shows that the outer shell was made using a 3D printer while there are added features such as the electrical wires, telecommunication jacks and many other necessary utilities.
A statement was made by the CEO of Dubai Future Foundation, Saif Al Aleeli, saying that they have witnesses various countries trying to test whether they can create 3D printed buildings but only to disappoint afterwards as they are not functional buildings. Function for the CEO means that it is equipped with MEP or mechanical, electrical and plumbing which covers air conditioning system and lighting. In short, for it to be functional, one should be able to use it.
The 3D printing was done by just one operator looking over the machine for 15 days while the assembly was completed by two persons in just two days. For the plumbing and electricity, 10 staffs were assigned to do the job. For plumbing services, visit Pro Jett Plumbing & Drainage.
