Custom building envelopes straight from the printer

Researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have developed multifunctional and translucent facade elements that can be produced with a 3D printer. The technology permits complete freedom in architectural design and the easy realization of innovative design concepts. The new facade also integrates functions such as ventilation, insulation and shading.
