Guinness record for world's largest 3D printed structure

On the 30th September in Beijing, China the Guinness World Record for the largest 3D printed structure was awarded to architects Yu Lei and Xu Feng of Laboratory for Creative Design (LCD).
 
The record was for the Vulcan, as the structure is called, which consists of 1.24 m³ (43.8 ft³) of 3D printed material. The Vulcan was erected at Parkview Green office and shopping complex in Beijing and was 2.8 m high and in the form of an archway.
 
The Vulcan took 30 days and 20 large-scale 3D printers to complete each of the units. The units were then assembled on site by 15 people in 12 days.
