Ultimaker's Olsson Block Enables Architectural Firm to 3D Print a City in No Time

One of the really neat things about 3D printing, in my opinion, is how its development has been such a collaborative effort. The technology has advanced so rapidly largely because we live in the era of hacking and crowdsourcing. The RepRap project is an obvious example, and we frequently cover stories of individuals coming up with […]

After graduating from college, I spent a year pursuing a Master’s Degree in Dublin, Ireland. While I loved the city, the highlights of my time overseas were the inexpensive flights that allowed me to travel to London, Prague, Budapest and Edinburgh on a budget. I was awed by every city that I visited. I fell […]

Oslo, Norway Makes 3D Printing an Integral Part of Future Urban Planning with 3D Printed Model of City

If you visit the Agency for Planning and Building Services in Oslo, you’ll see the results of the agency’s monumental effort to create a complex, small-scale model of the Norwegian city. The 3D printed model replaces a previous, decade-old, conventionally produced 3D model that needed to be updated. However, updating the earlier model would have […]

We have seen several interesting models of cities constructed via 3D printing. We saw LeapFrog print a massive model of ‘The Forbidden City’, while Autodesk teamed with real estate developer Tishman Speyer on a project to 3D print a scaled down version of San Francisco. Both projects were large in scale, and really showed off […]
