The applications of this amazing room printer are quite exciting. Industrially and commercially speaking, this cutting-edge machine presents the possibility of erecting complete enclosures efficiently, either for sale or for socially beneficial programs. In the case of an emergency scenario, a mobile machine like this KamerMaker 3D printer could be sent to the site to manufacture temporary homes and shelters instantly.

Built itself like a compact, upright container, this structure assembles structures inside of it using a robotic arm and nozzle. What's so unique and wonderful about DUS Architects' room printer is that it's easily shippable and open-source, facilitating the freedom to assemble specific shapes, and to do so out of a range of different materials, including concrete and even found and recycled plastic. The KamerMaker can save lives and do its part for the planet.
