Interior 3D printing in Abu Dhabi
Conventional ways of designing interior spaces are limited in scope. There are often mismatches between the form of the design item being developed and the space it is to occupy. Efficiency of space utilization is not maximized. 3D printing allows the designer and consumer to meet perfectly in the middle of their respective visions of a space and to maximize the utilization of the space available. Most critically 3D printing in interior design is not limited by material, since it can use a number of pliable materials to produce the item desired. 3D printing allows a great degree of specialization and customization of living spaces, in the same way that it allows the homes built even in the same building complex or area to be customized to specifications and needs. The manufacturing time required for 3D printing moreover is far less than conventional methods, and over a period of time, as markets develop for particular kinds of products the machines used to print themselves are fine-tuned, as are industry understandings of how market requirements can still be quantified despite the wide range of diversity in products.
Living in Abu Dhabi
3D printing allows a greater integration of interior design principles like balance, rhythm, interconnectedness and contrast. In modern homes interconnectedness between different interior components is a crucial aspect. Through interconnectedness of components the usage of a space can be maximized. Most significantly 3D printing allows design principles to be customized to suit the desert ecology of Abu Dhabi. Specialized elements can be created to suit a hotter, drier ecology and very low cost.
Desert ecologies necessitate spending a great amount of time indoors, and customizing the experience of these long hours spent inside is crucial aspect of producing efficient interior design in Abu Dhabi. For example, design principles can be used to saturate the space and make it correspond to ‘’desert modern’’ type of interior-design principles, which attempts to work with saturated interiors, colored in lighter pastels with the possibility of maximizing sunlight while still retaining strong protection against excess heat.
3D printing can also take these popular trends in interior design and customize them so they become more interconnected and functional. It also allows designers to develop prototypes which can be shown to clients so that they can get a better idea of the product before it is even made. With 3D printing the development of prototypes too is made much easier and is far more economical. Prints moreover are usually made from bioplastic and are a far eco-friendlier solution to the client’s needs. The prototyping moreover also allows for a reduction in errors in the final process and thus saves the project from major lapses and the risk of needing to start components of the project from scratch. This allows 3D printing to be a viable option for both small and large-scale ventures, since it allows economies of scale for larger companies, and allows finesse and accuracy for smaller scale ventures. 3D design options would form an ideal foundation for a start-up, which is looking to cater to a niche market in interior design and allows for interconnectedness and custom fitting for larger ventures.
Sustainability is perhaps the deepest and most critical part of the unfolding potential of interior design using 3D printing principles. Customization and sustainability are intricately connected. For a space to become fully sustainable it requires that it be customized in great detail to suit the rhythms of those that occupy it and allow the maximization of productive potential with the smallest ecological footprint. Conventional design philosophy cannot accomplish this degree of customization while remaining commercially viable, while 3D printing is designed to do precisely this.
What 3D printing allows moreover is for the product to be both extensively modelled on CAD software and also for it to be extensively prototyped at low cost. At ARL we encourage you to participate in the creation of your own designs. This opens up the imagination to consider the interior space of one’s workspace and accommodation not just from the point of view of what it is, but from the perspective of what it could be, any space or object is designable, re-combinable and customizable.
