3D Printed Architecture Projects on Display at 3D Printer World Expo
BURBANK, Calif., Jan. 16 — The quest for custom building materials is nearly as old as humanity itself. From carved wood to chiseled stone to clay bricks to steel beams, humanity has long been in search of custom materials, better structures and grand design. For builders and architects in the 21st Century, 3D printers are enabling groundbreaking design, materials, applications and projects. Emerging Objects is putting some of these technological wonders on display January 31st and February 1st at the 3D Printer World Expo in Burbank.
The Emerging Objects exhibit will feature Saltygloo, a fascinating experiment in large-scale, light-weight additive manufacturing. Saltygloo is constructed using 336 3D-printed panels made from salt harvested from the San Francisco Bay. The panels are affixed to form a semi-structural shell that is further supported with light-weight aluminum rods flexed in tension. Also on display will be a unique architectural design concept done in collaboration with ExOne.
Access to the architecture exhibits is included with all Expo passes. Other attractions include the 3D Printer World Museum featuring 3D-printed dinosaurs, a 3D Medical Experience Center featuring 3D-printed modern medical marvels, live demonstrations of 3D printers, contests and giveaways, interactive exhibits, a gallery of 3D printed art from renowned artists and much more. Four concurrent 3D printing education tracks also are available at the Expo – a Commercial 3D Printing track, a Desktop 3D Printing track, a track devoted to Learning with 3D Printing and a track for artists, entitled Modeling and Monetizing 3D Printable Designs.
From fans and enthusiasts that want to cruise the exhibit floor loaded with amazing feats of art and technology to the most serious of industry players, 3D Printer World Expo delivers the full 3D printing experience under one roof.
