Mexican Museum Case Study Looks At The Use Of 3D Printing In The Construction Industry

- Nov 02, 2018-

Benjamin Jodis, a researchers at California Polytechnic State University, recently wrote a case study, titled “Analyzing the benefits of using 3D printing on the Mexican Museum renovation project in San Francisco, California,” about a specific use case of 3D printing in the construction industry. 3D printing is perfect for buildings because it allows detailed virtual rendering of a structure and generates an accurate physical model.

Using a 3D print model, the Mexican museum team found a way to work around two walls.

While 3D BIM models and physical 3D printing models are only used for a small portion of the overall structure and are very permanent, they help avoid bigger design setbacks.The idea of using physical representations, rather than just virtual renderings, can also further emphasize the possibilities of 3D printing in the construction industry, such as concrete as a 3D printing material, helping to speed up requests for project information and submission processes, making scale models, and making custom tools.
