Remember the world’s First 3D printed office?
If you haven’t seen/ heard of it, You can check it just beside the Jumeirah Emirates Towers.
The world’s first 3D printed office space covers up to 250 square metros. The unique building on the Emirates Towers premises will house the temporary office of the Dubai Future Foundation.
The 3D printed office was inaugurated last March 2016 and is constructed using a special mixture of cement and a set of building materials designed and made in the UAE and the United States. A 3D printer measuring 20 feet high, 120 feet long and 40 feet wide was used to print the building. The printer features an automated robotic arm to implement the printing process.
Fast Forward to June 2017,
The UAE’s leading Additive Manufacturing (3D printing) company, has launched the country’s first 3D printing facility in line with the ‘Dubai 3D Printing Strategy’
The state-of-the-art facility houses over eight 3D printing systems and offers over 30 materials for production. It is equipped to build and manufacture production quality parts, components and one-off prototypes for customers across a variety of industries using a wide range of advanced technologies including Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Stereolithography (SLA), Extrusion (FDM), and Material Jetting.
The company is also committed to the research and development of 3D printing techniques, and has established its own proprietary techniques to fabricate and produce objects that would not be physically possible without AM.
“We believe in the extraordinary potential of 3D printing and its myriad benefits across all fields of business, where it can reduce costs, redefine productivity and fuel innovation. We are pleased to be opening our doors and supporting the Dubai 3D Printing Strategy, as we are confident that AM is the next big step in the world of manufacturing. This technology will support a new era of innovation by unlocking a world of fresh possibilities.” – Fahmi Al-Shawwa, CEO of Immensa Technology Labs
