partly 3D-printed

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has successfully completed and revealed the world’s first partly 3D-printed mosque. The project took approximately six months to finish and was initiated by a businesswoman named Wajannat Muhammad Abdel Wahed as a tribute to her late husband, according to Albawaba.

Four construction 3D printers from the Chinese company Guanly were used for the project, which covered an area of 5,600 square meters. The KSA project was completed in just over nine months, beating out Dubai, which also announced the construction of a 3D-printed mosque last year. However, it’s important to note that 3D printing technology was only used for non-load-bearing elements.

Previously, Dar Al Arkan used a COBOD 3D construction printer to create the 3-story, 9.9-meter-tall, the world’s tallest 3D-printed building, which comprises 345 sqm in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
