Dubai construction firm Cazza is planning to build the world's first 3D-printed skyscraper in the United Arab Emirates. The contractor plans to use a new technique called "crane printing".
“The crane printing system can be easily adopted with existing cranes which means we don’t have to build cranes from scratch,” said Fernando De Los Rios, Cazza’s chief operating officer. “We are adding new features to make it adaptable to high wind speeds along with the use of our layer smoothing system that creates completely flat surfaces. You won’t know it’s 3D printed.” The cranes will print materials including concrete and steel.
Cazza has yet to say the planned height of the skyscraper or when construction may start and anticipated completion dates.
