Abstract: Unique forms can be achieved with 3D Printing technologies that are costly and inefficient to fabricate using traditional methods. These new forms are superior in complexity, customisation and porosity, and hold great potential in advancing the architectural design giving designers a wider range of tools to create new architectural forms, and can also be more structurally efficient and environmentally sustainable. As a case study, fractal geometries are explored for their intricacy and structural behaviour. The rapid manufacturing process of 3D printing can also potentially alter the workflow of construction jobs, improving efficiency, shortening build times by streamlining the assembly process. While the technology has yet to fully mature, public awareness of 3D printing has skyrocketed in the past decade, and different research teams have made significant contributions towards development of 3D printing for architectural construction use. Literature review, 3D printed prototypes of several architectural elements, and structural simulation analysis and used to propose a methodology for the most effective application of 3D printing in architectural construction.
