This lecture was giving an overview of how 3d-printing and additive manufacture can be seen as a technology that provides new opportunities for archtiecture and construction. The talk was given at the 3dp-dagen, a one day conference assembling different interests wihtin this technological paradigm, from many different disciplines. The lecture included examples from practice and teaching, as well as cutting edge explorative work within architectural research.
