Can be built in one day!

3D printed nucleic acid testing kiosk opens in Nanjing

  3D printing has now entered various fields, and can often print many unexpected products in a short period of time, but have you ever seen a 3D printed house?

Recently, a batch of 3D-printed nucleic acid testing kiosks were officially put into use in Lishui District, Nanjing.

After printing the basic components of a house in one day, it can be assembled in just a few hours. Ziniu News reporter came to Liuhe District, Nanjing City to visit the production process of 3D printing nucleic acid testing booths.

  "Because the epidemic situation in various parts of the country was serious at the end of April, and the demand for nucleic acid testing was also relatively large, the idea of ​​using this technology to build nucleic acid testing booths was born." Mr. Wang, the person in charge, told reporters: "At that time, we donated free of charge. 5 3D-printed nucleic acid testing booths have been placed in Lishui District. I just want to make more contributions to the society, and as an enterprise, I also want to take on more social responsibilities.” It is reported that Nanjing Jiayi Precision Machinery Manufacturing Co., Ltd. was established. In 2010, it is a company specializing in 3D printing technology.

  In the production plant, two exquisite small houses stood in front of reporters impressively. The nucleic acid sampling booth was about 3 meters high and covered an area of ​​about 10 square meters.

Unlike other houses, the textures on the walls are clearly visible, and the combination of paint and stucco of different shapes and textures adds a sense of sophistication to this cottage.

  Talking about the construction process of the 3D printing nucleic acid testing booth, Mr. Wang said: "We use the computer to design first, and then input the model into the 3D printer. In layman's terms, the raw material of ordinary printers is paper, and our printers use The raw material is concrete that has undergone special treatment and contains special additives." The reporter saw at the scene that the 3D-printed nucleic acid detection booth was not built like a wall, but made up of different components.

Considering the light weight and ease of transportation of the nucleic acid testing booth, only the surrounding walls of the 3D-printed nucleic acid testing booth are printed, and the roof and doors and windows are made of iron sheets.

  Mr. Wang said that the 3D printing nucleic acid detection kiosk can basically print its components in one day, and then transport the components to the destination, and it can be assembled in two or three hours.

"These are all done in the factory and then transported to the site for assembly, which still has certain advantages over traditional buildings." Not only that, the 3D printed nucleic acid testing booth can also be changed at will according to the site, "After the epidemic is over, We can also disassemble the components of the 3D-printed nucleic acid detection booth and transport it to other places for other purposes depending on the way of assembling."

  "The cost of building a nucleic acid testing booth is about 1,500 yuan per square meter, and the total construction cost of a nucleic acid testing booth is more than 10,000 yuan." Mr. Wang said that the 3D-printed nucleic acid testing booth can currently be maintained for 10-20 years service life.

According to Mr. Wang, the 3D printed nucleic acid detection kiosk will be widely used if needed in the future.

In addition to the 3D-printed nucleic acid detection booth, a 3D-printed separate isolation shelter has also been built, but it has not yet been put into use.
