The future of the built environment is 3D printed, as California’s Bot Laboratory proves with this groundbreaking piece. Showcased at the Maker Fair 2014, the m_Wall was printed in only two pieces and stands over 6 feet 4 inches tall. Printed with the Euclid Robot 3D printer using both black and clear ABS plastic, the m_Wall is extremely strong with a single pass print thickness of over 1/4 inch (6.35mm). Architectural pieces need to be created with less expensive methods than “traditional” 3D printing, and the m_Wall proves that doing so is economically feasible by using inexpensive plastic pellets and high-speed production.
