Echoviren, the first architectural structure realized in 3D

<p> Last week, the <a href="http://cargocollective.com/SmithAllen/">Smith | Allen Studio collective</a> completed their work entirely composed of <strong>3D printed</strong> elements called <strong>Echoviren</strong> . This achievement, which took 15 days to complete, is located in the Redwood Forest, a giant redwood forest in Mendocino County, California. The artistic will was to realize it in translucent white to slice with the green of the spines and the red of the redwood trunks. The Echoviren is made up of 500 unique pieces printed individually on site thanks to 7 <strong>3D printers</strong> that have been filming continuously for 2 months (10800 hours cumulative). The plastic used for the work is <strong>bio-plastic PLA</strong> , so Echoviren will naturally decompose in this forest in about 40 years, becoming a micro-environment for insects, mosses and birds. </p><p> <a href="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/echoviren-3D-architectural-masterpiece-oeuvre-redwood-forest-mendocino-county-sequoias-cults-cults3D-fichier-3D-impression-3D-3D-printing-1-e1377258676398.jpg"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/echoviren-3D-architectural-masterpiece-oeuvre-redwood-forest-mendocino-county-sequoias-cults-cults3D-fichier-3D-impression-3D-3D-printing-1-e1377258676398.jpg" alt="echoviren 3D architectural masterpiece artwork redwood forest mendocino county sequoias cults cults3D 3D file 3D printing 3D printing 1"></a> </p><p><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/echoviren-3D-architectural-masterpiece-oeuvre-redwood-forest-mendocino-county-sequoias-cults-cults3D-fichier-3D-impression-3D-3D-printing.jpg" alt="echoviren 3D architectural masterpiece artwork redwood forest mendocino county sequoias cults cults3D 3D file 3D printing 3D printing"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/echoviren-3D-architectural-masterpiece-oeuvre-redwood-forest-mendocino-county-sequoias-cults-cults3D-fichier-3D-impression-3D-3D-printing-2.jpg" alt="echoviren 3D architectural masterpiece artwork redwood forest mendocino county sequoias cults cults3D 3D file 3D printing 3D printing 2"><br><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/echoviren-3D-architectural-masterpiece-oeuvre-redwood-forest-mendocino-county-sequoias-cults-cults3D-fichier-3D-impression-3D-3D-printing-4.jpg" alt="echoviren 3D architectural masterpiece artwork redwood forest mendocino county sequoias cults cults3D 3D file 3D printing 3D printing 4"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/echoviren-3D-architectural-masterpiece-oeuvre-redwood-forest-mendocino-county-sequoias-cults-cults3D-fichier-3D-impression-3D-3D-printing-5.jpg" alt="echoviren 3D architectural masterpiece artwork redwood forest mendocino county sequoias cults cults3D 3D file 3D printing 3D printing 5"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/echoviren-3D-architectural-masterpiece-oeuvre-redwood-forest-mendocino-county-sequoias-cults-cults3D-fichier-3D-impression-3D-3D-printing-6.jpg" alt="echoviren 3D architectural masterpiece artwork redwood forest mendocino county sequoias cults cults3D 3D file 3D printing 3D printing 6"></p><p> source: <a href="http://www.3ders.org/articles/20130823-artists-completes-echoviren-world-first-3d-printed-architectural-structure.html">3Ders</a> </p>
