Summary

This chapter focused on the practical example of creating the layout for a single-story one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment. This room layout went through two revisions whereby 3D printing the model drove each revision. After these revisions were completed, we designed and printed a larger scale assembly of the most recent revision. We then focused on detailing the bathroom using models downloaded and edited from Thingiverse and GrabCAD, and also created it in our CAD package with appropriate tolerancing.

I hope you have enjoyed learning about applications of 3D printing in the field of architecture, and can now effectively apply these principles to your own outside projects and commercial assemblies.
