​New $42m Centre Eyes 3D Printing of Rooms by Robots

In the future, your room might be 3D printed by a robot that can spray layers of concrete to create customised walls and toilets.

A newly launched $42 million 3D printing centre at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) will look into developing such capabilities for the manufacturing and engineering sectors, among others.

Funded by the National Research Foundation (NRF), the Singapore Centre for 3D Printing is one of the largest in the world. It was launched by Minister for Trade and Industry (Industry) S. Iswaran on 17 May 2016.
