The first 3D printed villas in Dubai will be opened in April. The project is part of the 3D printing strategy, which aims to rewrite Dubai as a world’s 3D printing center by 2030.
All the necessary equipment and tools needed for the construction are already in Dubai.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and the ruler of Dubai, launched this unique global initiative to exploit technology for “the service of humanity”, as stated on the project website.
The Dubai Strategy will have three primary focus areas. Medical applications will seek to develop 3D printed teeth, bones, artificial organs, medical and surgical devices, and hearing aids. Consumer applications will focus on household items, optics, fashion jewelry, children’s games and fast food. The construction sector will concentrate on lighting products, bases and foundations, facilities and parks, mobile homes – according to “Greenprophet”.
