The ETFE plastic roof canopy of the 6 Bevis Marks building in London features a decorative sheath that is the world’s first 3D-printed component approved for use in the construction industry, according to the canopy’s designer Adrian Priestman. Unlike most architecture firms who use 3D printing simply as a modeling tool, Priestman claims that his sheaths are the first to be 3D-printed for a specific use. The parts serve as complex joints between the building’s columns and the arms of its canopy.
