It looks like the world's first building, types the 3D-printer

In Dubai opened the world's first building constructed using the 3D-printer. On the construction of single-storey buildings equipped with the latest technology, it took less than three weeks. This office buduschego.Neobychnaya rounded shape of the façade ensures the stability of the object. The process of printing elements of the building took only 17 days, their installation - two dnya.
