The past months have been very constructive. Several new strong research partners have joined the R&D team in the quest to build a 3D printed canal house in the heart of Amsterdam. Currently the construction site is being prepared and the building permit is on its way! As soon as the building site will open to the public, also the new website www.3dprintcanalhouse.com will go online. The research and development of the KamerMaker will be continued and can from then on be followed via www.3dprintcanalhouse.com. The opening date of both the building site and website will be posted here soon. We’re looking forward to meet you there!
The canal house design continues to evolve and our tests continue to grow as we break the 2.5m barrier!

Partner DOEN visited the KamerMaker. We had a nice analogue presentation and discussion about the effects and future possibilities of 3D printing.
Today the KamerMaker is one of the Amsterdam locations for the international press visit in the context of the Coronation fever. Crews from Russia, Japan, Costa Rica, Germany, Norway and many others where interested to see the innovative side of Amsterdam.
Today we celebrated the launch of the building of the Worlds’ first 3D-printed Canal House. Amsterdam deputy mayor Carolien Gehrels, Amsterdam Smart City partners, the Amsterdam Economic Board, the Dutch Building Industries and DUS architects with the KamerMaker team signed a letter of intent and secure the start of the first building phase in 2013. It starts today!
The KamerMaker has been printing during the recent snow period! Stichting DOEN also gave us a visit to talk about what the KamerMaker will do in the upcoming year. We gave them a little demonstration.
We would like to thank the Virtueel Platform http://virtueelplatform.nl/ for supporting the KamerMaker by ordering 60 champagne glasses. The glasses were given to all the speakers at the Howdoyoudo http://howdoyoudo.creativemediadays.be/ conference which took place in Gent, Belgium. We also presented the KamerMaker at the conference where we had some great discussions with the other presenters and attendees. If you would like help support the KamerMaker, you can order your own champagne glass(es) here and we will ship them to you: http://www.kamermaker.com/?page_id=180
Also thanks again thanks to Joris for helping us print the champagne glasses again.
