The 3D printing method involves a huge robotic arm with a nozzle that squirts out a specially formulated cement, said to have the texture of whipped cream. The cement is “printed” according to an architect’s design, adding layer upon layer to create a wall to increase its strength.
“With 3D printing you generate a huge creativity and a huge flexibility in design,” he added. “Why did we do so much effort to print this ‘rock’? Because this shows perfectly that you can make any shape you want to make.”
