The first 3D-printed approved components for use in the construction industry, have been designed and installed by British architect Adrian Priestman.
The 3D-printed parts serve as joints between the building’s columns and the arms of its canopy.
Priestman believes is the first application of 3D-printing components, because it has been approved for use by a major construction firm.
“There may be someone who has done an installation, but this is a building component that has to stand for fifteen or twenty years; as long as everything that has been warrantied on the building,” he said to dezeen.
