Despite its large size, the structure is a very light and it can be easily transported, assembled and dismantled in a few hours by two workmen. The process begins with the architect designing his project using CAD 3D Computer technology. The Computer design obtained is downloaded into a STL file and is imported into the Computer program that controls D-Shapes printer head. The process takes place in a non-stop work session, starting from the foundation level and ending on the top of the roof, including stairs, external and internal partition walls, concave and convex surfaces, bas-reliefs, columns, statues, wiring, cabling and piping cavities. During the printing of each section a structural ink is deposited by the printers nozzles on the sand. The solidification process takes 24 hours to complete. The printing starts from the bottom of the construction and rises up in sections of 5-10mm. Upon contact the solidification process starts and a new layer is added.

Surplus sand that has not been embedded within the structure acts as a buttressing support while the solidification process takes place. This surplus sand then can be reused on future buildings.

D-Shape can print any feature that can be enveloped into a cube 6×6 meters side. The applications by Monolite are endless.

1. Public/Urban.Bus stops; park benches/seats; kiosks; colored marble effect pavements; fountains.

2. Private.Gazebos; swimming pool furnishings (dummy rocks, fountains, small bridges,

chairs, pavements); artistic staircases; fountains; flower boxes; home stone furnishing: basins, kitchens, sofas, tables.

3. Playgrounds and kindergarten.Fantasy buildings, tunnels, caves, mountains.

4. Religious.Temples, bell towers, altars, statues, arches, columns.

5. Natural Parks / Zoo – Recreational.Nearly zero environment impact architecture, bungalows, aquariums, caves.

6. Studios/Artistic.Reproduction of buildings, fantasy/futurist shapes, caves for movies.

Any artistic feature: horses, heads, etc.

7. Archaeology.Missing parts of columns etc.

Seen from the outside, D-Shape appears like a big aluminium structure inside of which the building will be constructed. CAD-CAM software drives the machinery during the building process. This structure holds the printer head, which of course is the real core of the new technology. Despite its large size, the structure is a very light and it can be easily transported, assembled and dismantled in a few hours by two workmen.

D-Shape appeals to two different kind of costumers:BUILDING INDUSTRY:

– Building contractors to make one to two floor buildings.

– Architectural Firms that need to make scaled models of buildings.

– All generic sandstone product manufacturers.

– Studios that make dummy rocks for aquariums, swimming pools and wellness centres.

– Fantasy structures for recreational/adventure/ parks and the sandstone sculptors.

– Museums and Foundations that need to replicate monuments and temples.
