Last month, a UC Berkeley research team demonstrated the potential for 3D Printing and architectural applications. The team, led by associate architecture professor, Ronald Rael, constructed the largest recorded structure built using 3D Printed cement blocks which were individually Printed and then placed into the structure. The Pavilion-like structure contains 840 9x12x12 ft. powder-coated blocks built in a pattern that the team developed called Bloom. The blocks were Printed using 11 3D Printers manufactured by 3D Systems.
