The main focus of the initiative is to make 3D printing technologies be integrated with the way we live. Ultimately, 25% of buildings in Dubai should be 3D printed by 2030, and even raise the percentage with the development of global technology as well as growth of market demand.
This technology has effects that will have an economic value, by lowering costs, reducing the time and manpower requirements in construction projects. Wastes will also be reduced.
