Dubai to become the hub for 3D printing technology
By 2025, Dubai Municipality has a vision of making all new buildings 25% 3D printed. The authority aims to use this cutting-edge technology in the medical sector too, exploring the use of 3D-printed prosthetic limbs, 3D printed teeth, and 3D printed hearing aids in public clinics and hospitals.
