    Hey all

    I'm new here. Would love to ask what's the latest tools you can recommend. We'll be 3D printing high-rise building(15+ stories) and need to estimate construction cost. 

    What are software or online tools out there you can suggest? Thanks in advance

    Interesting, I wasn't aware that an entire building can be 3d printed.
    Are the entire structural components also 3d printed? What about the l.f.r.s.?
