Unique, one-of-a-kind building components, generated quickly and economically from advanced 3-dimensional modeling software – until now this promise of 3D printing was unfulfilled. Conventional 3D printing served as an expensive prototyping process, important as a design tool but falling short in production. However, this year the San Francisco Bay Area firm Rael San Fratello Architects […]

Rapid Manufacturing and Prototyping with Concrete

3D printed concrete form

Earthscrapers is an installation for the 2010 Biennial of the Americas that imagines the potential of employing Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) processes in the construction of a proto-architectural landscape—one where the building material source and the building itself are seamless. It also demonstrates the internal design, research and experimentation process […]
