3D-Printed Air Conditioner Allows for Personalized Control Panel Displays
Haier's Quingdao air conditioner makes for facing, air flow and efficiency customization settings
The world’s first 3D-printed air conditioner showcased at the China Appliance and Electronics World Expo this March in Shanghai.
Haier‘s Quingdao air conditioner sold for 40,000 Chinese Yuan, approximately $6,300. Though this is high for a commercial air conditioning unity, the creators demonstrated that the entire unit is custom designed for the aesthetics and function of the clients needs. Each piece is produced on demand, moving the unit from simply modular to fully customized. Even the LCD control panel is printed on demand, allowing for shapes, sizes and configuration as diverse as an individuals needs and imagination.
