Shipping Container Houses 3D Printer That Can Produce Entire Rooms
Mobile, open platform brings together professionals and amateurs to create buildings, rooms and structures
The world’s first 3D printer pavilion, the KamerMaker, has opened in central Amsterdam.
Translating roughly to ‘room-maker,’ the KamerMaker showcases 3D printing’s ability to print rooms, houses, buildings, structures and, if so inspired, additional 3D printing pavilions.
A mobile printing facility with intentions to travel to various global centers, the project is housed in an 18-foot shipping container designed by DUS architects. Stood up on the narrow container end, the pavilion is positioned to print out taller shapes in relation to its footprint. Tipped lengthwise on its side, the printer is adjusted to produce longer, wider shapes.
Focusing on how 3D printing revolutionizes the way in which we consume things and respond to our surroundings, the video below describes the mission statement motivating the KamerMaker project:
