Experts say it is a promising step in the fight to restore the coastal habitats, but the focus must also be on regrowing natural corals. Dini hopes his creations can not only help to protect the environment but also be used to print pieces for humans in the future.

Enrico Dini’s D-shape 3D printer is a large aluminium gantry structure, which uses CAM software to drive a huge print head during the building process. It can print buildings – at least the most parts of it – on site with much less manpower needed for construction. It deposits sand followed by an inorganic binding material. Excess material acts as a support to the binded structure and when the print is finished the excess material can be removed and reused.
