Dubai adds another first to its list of jaw-dropping achievements. This time, they have thrown open the world’s first fully functional 3D printed building.
“We implement what we plan, and we pursue actions, not theories. The rapidly changing world requires us to accelerate our pace of development for history does not recognize our plans but our achievements,” Shaikh Mohammad, the Ruler of Dubai, said as he opened the 'Office of the Future', the first 3D-printed office in the world.

The building, called the 'Office of the Future,' including all interior furniture, detailing, and structural components, were fabricated using a 3D printer measuring 20 feet high, 120 feet long and 40 feet wide, and included an automated robot arm, according to reports. Materials for this building construction included a mixture of special reinforced concrete, glass fiber reinforced gypsum, and fiber reinforced plastic. The team also built in an arc shape for additional safety and structural integrity. And it was built in just 17 days.
