The world’s first fully functioning 3-D office in Dubai was inaugurated by the prime minister of UAE and ruler of Dubai on Tuesday. It is said to be a part of a drive by the Gulf’s main tourism and business hub to develop technology that cuts costs and saves time.

These 3-D printers usually used on a small-scale to make digitally designed, three-dimensional objects from plastic, have not been used much for building. A Dubai-government statement said that this one used a special mixture of cement and reliability tests were done in Britain and China. This office costs $140,000

The government also said that the one-storey prototype building, with floor-space of about 250 square metres (2,700 square feet), used a 20-foot (6-metre) by 120-feet by 40-feet printer.

“Studies estimated the technique could cut building time by 50-70% and labour costs by 50-80%. Dubai’s strategy was to have 25 percent of the buildings in the emirate printed by 2030”, he added.
