Just two weeks ago, we reported on The World’s First Flying 3D Printer, which was created by a man in London named Mirko Kovac. The purpose of this device was to print a glue-like substance so that a drone could attach itself to an object and remove it from a location, not to actually print 3D objects. Today, we have been informed that there is yet another flying 3D printer project in the works. This one is actually being produced with the intentions of constructing objects.

MUPPette – Mobile Unmanned Printing Platform
A fully automated mobile platform for 3D printing capable of producing objects of limitless scale does not currently exist. In the hope of remedying this situation, Gensler’s Los Angeles office initiated Mobile 3D Printing, a Gensler research project born from an observation of present-day 3D printing technology and its limitations.
This represents only the very beginning of a multi-year endeavor. We welcome community contributions to this promising new adaptation of mobility and 3D printing.
