CHINA’S 3D PRINTING
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 Printed Courtyard 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.
This 300 sqm dwelling in China’s Shandong Province was produced using 3D printing technology at a total cost of 1.5 million RMB.
