While the drone wasn’t used to hoist the trapped rafters to safety, what it did was help airlift equipment such as life jackets to the rafters who were trapped on top of a rock. It also acted as a scout and lookout for when an inflatable boat was deployed to help bring the trapped men back to shore. Read full post →Drone Used To Help Rescue Trapped Rafters
We’ve seen 3D printing being used for all sorts of things, like creating fake animal parts to discourage poaching, to even 3D printing supercars, so what’s next? Now we know that 3D printing a building, or at least part of a building is possible, but what about 3D printing an entire building?
Apparently that is something the United Arab Emirates National Innovation Committee is interested in as they have announced a project in which they plan to 3D print an entire office building in Dubai. The project will be led by a company called WinSun Global who had previously 3D printed an entire apartment building, so safe to say they have some experience in this matter.
