The 3D-printed bus shelter by WinSun even comes with basic chairs and desks.
3D-printing is currently a hot trend in the designing and manufacturing industry. Whether it be small toys, critical aircraft parts or even houses, 3D printing has come out as a faster and more economical way of producing things. China is known for making it big in every field and they have just done that with their first 3D-printed bus shelter.
WinSun Construction has just 3D-printed a bus shelter in the Fengjing Ancient Town, Jinshan, China. The shelter has a shape that unusual for a civic construction, which has been made possible due to the capabilities of 3D-printing. The shelter is built out of recycled waste material that also enhances its environmental-friendly quotient up a notch. On the surface of the frame, there are traces of original ‘inks’ made by 3D printing machine ink nozzles, which is considered to be a mark of 'ecologically aware' luxury items these days.
The whole thing was printed in one night and be shipped to the desired location. Currently, the shelter includes some tables and chairs but more stuff can be added in the future. WinSun has previously made a 3D-printed restroom and is aiming for an ecologically advanced small town that will be constructed with the help of 3D printing.
