3D Printing Architecture
- Caroline Kurze
Digital Grotesque created a whole space that is entirely 3D printed out of sandstone. Two individual halves form an aggregate volume. From the outside, the structure presents itself as a cubical mass, but its interior hides an intricate geometry of millions of design facets.+ Read More
Every aspect of the object is materialized by custom designed algorithms using computer based data input. The medium, and the process of its assembly was carefully chosen. Sand-printing technology has recently emerged as a manufacturing technique that overcomes the limitations of 3D printing, which typically is confined to prototyping and small-scale models. This process allows the creation of large-scale elements with high resolution and accuracy, which are fully self-supporting and can be assembled as a solid construction.
