(3DPrint.com)  Dubai is planning to erect the world’s first 3D printed skyscraper. The construction will be carried out by Cazza Construction Technologies, a company that has developed a system of 3D printing buildings at large scale and at high speed with the use of giant robotic 3D printers. The skyscraper will be printed with the help of cranes that have added units specifically designed for 3D printing at heights of 80 meters and higher. All of the major structural components of the building, including the steel rebar reinforcement, will be 3D printed.
Cazza Construction Technologies has generated a tremendous amount of buzz in the construction industry, and has already received several offers of buyouts and investments. Recently, an unnamed Saudi developer offered to buy the company for $38.6 million. Cazza CEO Chris Kelsey says he has no plans to sell the company at the moment, but is open to investments. Right now, they’re focused on Dubai.
