A new 3D printing company has a new product that uses metal roofing to create a 3-D printed building that’s lighter than a traditional model.
The company, King Architecture, is launching its metal roof product, called the King 2, on Friday, but the company is already using the product in more than 100 buildings around the world.
It was created to replace the traditional model of a building’s roof, which has a built-in air intake that cools the building while it’s being built, so that it doesn’t leak air, according to King.
Instead of a traditional roof, the King building is built with a mesh of metal, with the mesh layer extending from the ground level up to the top.
This way, when it’s time to replace a roof, it’s much easier to do so, and the roof will stay attached to the structure while the building is being built.
King says its roof can be built for a couple hundred dollars per roof, compared to the tens of thousands of dollars it costs to construct a traditional structure, and is expected to be able to replace that cost in less than two years.
The roof is also expected to last much longer than traditional structures, and it will be able take on more than a dozen years of use.
