3D printing is slowly becoming integrated into the architectural design and construction process.

Applications that 3D printing can help with:

  • Creating and printing concept models:  Some firms have started implementing the use of the 3D printed models to create concept models. This helps both the architects and clients visualize and have a better understanding of the building or space that they are designing.
  • Creating molds: 3d printing molds that could be used to reproduce the same item in a different material using other processes such as concrete casting or injection molds.
  • Even structures and homes that are 3D printed: see this article about a few.
