Dubai Holding on Monday launched the International Centre for 3D Printing as the first step in bringing plans to put the emirates at the centre of the global 3D printing technology by 2030.
The conglomerate said in a statement that the project is in line with last week’s directives of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai an international destination for 3D printing.
The project, located at Dubai Industrial City, will create a suitable atmosphere and provide the appropriate infrastructure to bring under one roof a network of design and technology suppliers as well as factories.
It will include research centres and laboratories for testing materials used in 3D printed products within an integrated environment dedicated to serve construction, medicine, and consumer products sectors. More info
