A 3D bridge

China’s First One-Step Modeling 3D Printed Bridge

The bridge made with polymer materials was printed on a 3D printer in one step process and installed in a Shanghai park on Friday, January 11, 2018.

It took 35 days to get the entire bridged printed out and is expected to last for 30 years.

One-step multi-material 3D printed designs have no need for adhesives, optimize material and structural specifications and allow for greater design variety.

A 3D house

This freestanding house with a courtyard, located in Shandong Province, was built in just one day using 3D printing technology.

Its cavity walls are 5 times stronger than normal masonry walls and can be further filled with various insulation materials.

The cost of this 300 sqm dwelling is around 1.5 million RMB, about 5,000 RMB per square meter.

The living room of a house that was built in just one day opens up to a private courtyard.

A 3D Printed Multi-Storey House

A multi-storey residential building was produced by a Chinese company in Suzhou in 2015 through 3D printing.

The building walls were produced through 3D printing using construction waste as printing “ink”.

The interior of a building is produced by 3D printers.

3D-Printed Prical Gown

Chinese in Shanghai successfully produced 2 sets of wedding gowns with nylon powder through 3D printing techniques in 2014. But it took a week to print out the bridal headpiece alone.
