3D Print Canal House

DUS Architects

The 3D Print Canal House is a three-year research project in which DUS Architects, in collaboration with a number of national and international partners, work on the printing of a canal house to study the possibilities of 3D printing in architecture.

DUS Architects print the canal house room by room with the KamerMaker, or Room Maker, a portable 3D printer. The granules used for printing consist of 80% vegetable flaxseed oil. 3D printing in architecture provides numerous benefits in terms of sustainability, such as transport reduction, little to no waste, printing on location, and the possibility of recycling the building.
