The 3D Print Canal House is a three-year, publicly accessible "Research & Design by Doing" project in which an international team of partners from various sectors works together on 3D printing a canal house in Amsterdam.Take the guesswork out of planning a Amsterdam vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
By building the house, all parties research the possibilities of 3D printing architecture and form connections between design, science, culture, building, software, communities and the city. The project serves as both an exhibition of 3D printing technology, as well as a research site into 3D printing architecture. The project is initiated by DUS architects and the site, in Amsterdam North, opened to the public on March 1, 2014.
3D Print Canal House Reviews
Not sure if this is still open, we went to the direct location of the house but couldn’t find it. I was really looking forward to it. more »
Great and engaging short tour and eager to answer questions, though most of them seamed to be answered by the tour. Exciting reseach going on here in the field of 3D printing. more »
It is quite interesting to see, but you need a proper tour to get to understand the whole concept. Still there is way to go u til the whole house is finished, but is incredible to see such project in real life. Won't reveal the other interesting things to see inside the exhibition area.
Sorry, but the Project has ended in 2018. In the yard of the company there is only a little house and some parts of walls. Not very impressive. Pity.
