Printing an Entire Building!

It’s not exactly desktop fabbing, but it is definitely interesting. French architectural firm R&Sie plans on building an “Ice Museum” by fabbing the entire building from pre-made wood media. Unlike typical 3D printers that create objects by gradually adding material, the technique to be used for the Ice Museum will be subtractive – sheets of wood will be milled into intricate layers that are then glued together, eventually forming the entire building. Should be interesting to watch…. but duck when the CNC arm comes swinging by!
