It is the biggest 3D-printer in the world, handling objects as big as six metres cubed, layered in 5mm sections. The technique, says Dini, brings together the best of printing technology and robotics. He is presently working with Foster & partners, Renzo Piano, Fuksas, Zaha Hadid Architects, UN studio on this new technology.
