Dutch architecture firm DUS has developed The KamerMaker (RoomBuilder) – a 3D printer so large that it can create entire rooms! Dubbed by its creators the “world’s first movable pavilion,” the KamerMaker features an enlarged ‘Ultimaker’ 3D printing machine that is so big it’s actually capable of printing smaller pavilions. In fact, it is capable of printing objects as large as 7.2 feet by 7.2 feet by 11.4 feet. Not only that, but the large-scale 3D printer can produce objects made from corn bio-plastic.
DUS developed the KamerMaker in order to “bring together people from all design disciplines in an open source, on- the-spot design and build pavilion.” They hope that the 3D printer could be used to push the boundaries of 3D print design and building as well as raising awareness about re-use of (biodegradable) plastics.
