Nashville’s OneC1TY development saw the erection of the world’s largest 3D printed structure this summer. The 20 ft x 40 ft (6 m x 12 m) pavilion was built by Branch Technologies of Chattanooga, TN using a design that does not require steel/non-printed supports. RSA’s Reality Capture Group is working with Branch Technologies to monitor the first of its kind structure through periodic mapping via terrestrial laser scanners.
I’ve been watching 3D printing for a long time now and even have a small one that I use at home. Even with that experience, it’s still amazing to see a 3D structure “in the wild” much less one of this size and significance given its prominence at the OneC1TY campus. – Sam Billingsley -Director, Reality Capture Group
