The technological advancement of 3D printing creates new opportunities for the Facade industry. The freedom to design a product where the only limit seems to be the imagination gives a new perspective on and through your facade. Think of custom made handles or other design elements, but also complete complex technical facade designs are part of the possibilities. Alcoa | Kawneer already uses 3D printing in special Project Solutions as for example in The Edge in Amsterdam. Because of form-freedom a few elements are not only prototyped with 3D printing, but actually manufactured using this new manufacturing method. Furthermore a research has been established in the recent years in cooperation with the TU-Delft to solve the quest for complex facade geometry by using a 3D printed corner joint. This joint combines a host of functions in 1 part that joins transoms and mullions together under any desired angle. 3D printing, the manufacturing technology of the future facade.
