Facts about the true state of the art of 3d construction printing

whitePaper | December 13, 2019

Winsun has a 3D construction printer installed in their factory in Suzhou, China, that produces elements by 3D printing. The elements are then transported to and assembled at the building site to form the building structure. Hence, Winsun is actually 3D printing precast elements and do not 3D print on the building site. Therefore, when Winsun claimed to have done 10 buildings in 10 days, it actually meant, that they assembled 10 buildings in 10 days, out of elements 3D printed in the factory long before.
