The KamerMaker (RoomBuilder) is the world’s first movable pavilion that can 3D print entire rooms of plastics
Its 3D print technology is based on an enlarged ‘Ultimaker’ 3D printing machine. This machine can print 3D objects using PLA (bio plastics produced from corn). Just like its little sister, the KamerMaker can print small interiors, measuring up to 2.0m(width) x 2.0m (length) x 3.5m (height). What sets the KamerMaker apart from the Ultimaker, next to its great size, is that it is a real architectural pavilion. In other words: The KamerMaker itself is a pavilion, that can reproduce small pavilions!
– Brings together people from all design disciplines in an open source, on- the-spot design and build pavilion
– Tests the future of 3D print design and building
– Raises awareness about re-use of (biodegradable) plastics
– Tests novel types of temporary ‘on demand architecture’, and implement solutions for emergency architecture (plastic housing from recycled plastics in the slums, disaster solutions) and temporary event architecture.
– Links a global online design debate to a local context and vice versa
– Brings 3D print techniques to local neighborhoods
The KamerMaker is an initiative of DUS architects in collaboration with Ultimaker Ltd, Fablab Protospace, Open Coop, and a number of volunteer enthusiasts. The KamerMaker project is deliberately open source and all research data will be available online. Everyone is welcomed to join in, participate and improve the print-technique of the KamerMaker and the design of rooms that the KamerMaker will produce.
