Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

3D Printed Office ?



WHAT  ?

Dubai has opened what it said was the world's first functioning 3D - printed office building to house temporary headquarters of Dubai Future Foundation



SIZE  ?

250 Sq M ( 2700 Sq ft )



COST  ?

$ 140,000  ( approx Rs 98 lakh ) / only Rs 3630 per sq ft  ?



TIME  TO  CONSTRUCT  ?

17 days



NO  OF  WORKERS  ?

18 ( including Supervisor )



SAVINGS  ?

#  Construction time ............ 50 - 70 %

#  Labour Cost..................... 50 - 80 %



MATERIAL  USED  ?

Special mixture of cement



SIZE  OF  3D  PRINTING  MACHINE  ?

20 feet ( height ) / 40 feet ( width ) / 120 feet ( length )



WHAT  NEXT  ?

Says UAE Prime Minister, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum :

"  Dubai's strategy is to have 25 % of the buildings in the Emirate printed , by 2030  "



LESSON  FOR  INDIA  ?

If we can send Mars Orbital Mission and a Reusable Space Vehicle , what is so difficult to " Copy / Adapt " this 3D printing technology for those 20 million ( or is it 50 million ? ) , affordable flats that we want to build by 2022 ?


As far as I can make out , all that stands in the way is  :


#  To invite WINSUN DESIGN DECORATION COMPANY of Shanghai ( the World leaders in 3D Printed Housing ) , to set up operations in each Indian State


Or is it " Fear of Failure / Fear of being Ridiculed , if things don't work out as well as expected / Too much Analysis producing Action Paralysis "  ?


Remember , Thomas Alva Edison was not " ashamed " of trying 1400 + times , before succeeding to invent a light bulb !
