    Surprising Ways an Architecture Department can Use 3D Printing

    January 14, 2020

    3D printing is becoming the norm in terms of prototyping for the manufacturing industry. The ability to create functional designs and even manufacture parts in a fraction of the time it would take by using traditional methods is astounding. It isn’t just the manufacturing sector that is reaping these rewards.

    The education sectors are also seeing the benefits. These benefits spread across many different departments, but in this blog article, we look at how architecture departments in different schools are benefiting from 3D printing.
