3D printing of buildings and vehicles

3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is the construction of a three-dimensional object from a CAD model or a digital 3D model. 3D printing is currently useful from sizes a few centimetres across to the size of buildings. Mostly, it lacks the definition for smaller items and the strength for larger ones.
