Government Office 3D Printed in Dubai

Dubai Office of the Future is the First 3D printed commercial building in the world

DUBAI, February 20 Winsun 3D (Yingchuang Construction Technology) 3D printed the landmark “Future Office” for the Dubai Municipal Government in 2016. It is now the world’s first 3D printed commercial building and is included in the Guinness Book of Records.

The 3D-printer that was used by Winsun 3D, was measuring 6 meter (20 ft) high, 36 meters (120 ft) long and 12 meters (40 ft) wide was used to print the building. The entire structure was printed using a giant cement printer, then assembled on site. Printing took 17 days and was installed on in 2 days.

It consists of 17 modules, with a width of 13 meters and a height of 3 meters. It will be transported by sea after printing at Yingchuang Suzhou factory. The installation takes only 2 days. The office opened in May 2016. The UAE Vice President and Prime Minister, Dubai Chief Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum unveiled it.

Standardization of Construction: Testing 3D printed structure

Khalfan Belhoul, CEO of Dubai Future Foundation, said: “The most unique thing about a 3D printed house is that it can withstand destructive experiments.” In 2016, Dubai construction experts conducted rigorous safety and rugged performance tests on Yingchuang’s 3D printed walls: After 28T destructive testing, there are few cracks, and its solid strength is 5 times that of traditional buildings.

“The office wall is printed as hollow with built-in insulation”, said Noah Raford, head of global affairs at Dubai Future Foundation. Reduce carbon emissions. “

African delegation 3D Printing Tour in China

African Delegation visits 3D Construction Printing Site

SUZHOU CHINA – On November, 2018, Government delegation from Nigeria visited the largest 3D construction printing factory in Suzhou. This is one of many factories owned by Winsun in China. During this tour visitors were shown various architecture structures, wall patterns and other components developed with Additive Manufacturing (3D Print) technology, some of these structures include villas, mini houses, medium sized bungalows, infinity shaped house, midrise apartment complex, road construction components, public rest rooms, smart palms, water retention systems, garden furniture, etc. The visitors were also treated to a first-hand look at how the machine prints the structures.


The tour began with a quick history of Winsun’s 3D construction printing technology, followed by a tour of the buildings line up. The tour team was open to answering any questions throughout the process and the visitors had the opportunity to access all the rooms in the buildings, get a closer look at the layout and different kinds of wall patterns. Visitors were also shown the wall structures and how reinforcement can be used in the construction. Most of these techniques are also used in conventional reinforced concrete construction, but due to 3D printing the main structure, it’s becomes much more efficient to build.

Throughout the experience, the group discussed the rapid growth of the company and the attention that it has drawn over the years. For most of the visitors, the technology was an eye opener, and they welcomed the technology into Africa.

This tour formed one of the many tours per month conducted across all of Winsun and Winsun’s JV factories around the world.
