How 3D printing revolutionizes architecture

Neri Oxman, a professor at the MIT Media Lab has produced a 6-inch cube sculpture “Making the Future” to illustrate the future of manufacturing. She recognizes too much limitations in conventional manufacturing and that limits the designers' mind too. There are some shapes that simply can't be built with existing molds and machining tools, but new 3D printing technology allows computers to build up structures using complex algorithms to make it possible to produce surprising shapes and structures. She believes that designers and architects can learn to take advantage of technology and expand their creativity.
