3-D printing is revolutionizing construction and design fields
Renee Eaton
Additive manufacturing — or 3-D printing as it often called — is a process in which a solid object is made when a CAD model directs the printer to apply hundreds to thousands of successive layers in the required shape. This method is in direct contrast to traditional (subtractive) manufacturing, which begins with a block or billet of material that is then cut away until the desired piece is obtained; or casting, which involves injecting a liquid material into a mold and letting it solidify.

Lumina News
The wheels started turning when Christopher Yermal used 8,000 pounds of material scoured from the New Hanover County landfill in North Carolina to build an award-winning structure to house a biofuel tank at Tidal Creek Co-op. Yermal said his general contracting company, Old School Rebuilders, always considered sustainability in remodeling and new construction projects, but the success of that endeavor spurred him to add deconstruction to the company's repertoire.

That Arts District focus helps explain why, when a broker called in 2010, the pair were unfamiliar with the Sunset Boulevard property the broker was dangling. Still, the moment Bar-Zemer pulled up to the building, he saw two things: an architectural gem hidden inside decades of neglect, and the future of urban living.
