How to use a 3D Printer for Architecture
Designing for 3D printing
To ensure a high quality 3D print it is essential to keep the design rules for 3D Printing in mind. When designing your model you need to take into account the fact that your model is build up with closed surfaces and printable wall thicknesses.
3D Print your design
The great thing of 3D Printing is that you are able to print complex shapes and highly detailed designs that will be too time consuming if they were build by hand. A 3D Printer can be used to print detailed designs, e.g.: complex facades, interiors, environmental elements (cars, trees, people), roofs etc. A large flat floor surface can also be printed, however using a laser cutter for these kind of parts might suit this purpose better
