Record Holder Dubai is now home to the world’s largest 3D-printed two-story building.


On Wednesday, officials in the city’s Warsan neighborhood unveiled the building , which is 9.5 meters (31 feet) tall and has a total area of 640 square meters (6,889 square feet).


The structure’s concrete walls were constructed in place using a massive 3D printer — and the entire building serves as a testament to the power of 3D printing in construction.


Benefits Abound


According to a story by The National , constructing the 3D-printed building required just 15 workers as opposed to the expected 30 for a project of its size. 3D printing also produced 60 percent less waste than traditional techniques, according to the publication. The use of 3D printing cut down on construction costs, too, with officials telling The National that the technique drops the estimated cost of constructing a building of this size from Dh2.5 million (US$680,660) to less than Dh1 million (US$272,264).
