The Office of The Future is a 3D printed office building in Dubai, which shows the potential of 3D printing to cut costs and time spent on construction. The bulk of the building was printed using a 20 x 120 x 40 feet printer, which layered a cement mixture up over the course of 17 days. Elsewhere, mobile 3D printers produced smaller parts, which were assembled on site.
