Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded the establishment of India’s first 3D-printed Post Office in Cambridge Layout, Bengaluru.
What Happened: Taking to X (formerly known as Twitter), Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his admiration for the groundbreaking project. He stated, “Every Indian would be proud to see India’s first 3D printed Post Office at Cambridge Layout, Bengaluru. A testament to our nation’s innovation and progress, it also embodies the spirit of a self-reliant India.”
How Did It Happen: The construction involved a robotic printer meticulously layering concrete in alignment with the approved design, utilising special-grade concrete that hardens quickly.
The post office was completed in just 43 days, beating its deadline by two days. Spearheaded by Larsen & Toubro Limited, with technological contributions from IIT Madras, this endeavour cost approximately ₹23 lakh. This cost-efficient feat, amounting to 30-40% less than conventional methods, resulted in a sprawling 1,021 sq ft post office.
