Facade – Temporary

Aectual Bio Facades® are recyclable 3D printed façade panels produced of bio-plastic. They are a perfect sustainable solution for temporary and semi-permanent buildings.

Sophisticated shapes

Aectual Bio Facades offer endless design possibilities. Each panel is produced individually, allowing for elaborate and non-repetitive ornament. They are produced with Aectual’s rapid XL 3D Printing technology and bio-based plastics. That makes the façade panels especially suitable for temporary buildings, shop exteriors, pavilions and fairs, as the material can be shred and directly re-printed.

Design as far as your imagination leads you

With Aectual Bio Facades double curvatures and intricate patterns become easy. Also special ‘add-ons’ such as canopies, seating and shelving, as well as complex corner details and integrated waste-pipe solutions, can be accounted for in the design and fabrication-process, and seem to ‘grow’ from the walls. As a result, installation is fast, easy and error free.

Soft, tactile, and versatile

Aectual’s bio-based plastic is made from Linseed and has a lovely soft tactile quality. It comes in all RAL, NCS and Pantone colours. The panels are build up in horizontal printed lines with a line thickness varying between 4 – 8 mm. Actual has developed several 3D print techniques that mimic crafts such as weaving and crocheting, allowing you to play with textures as well.

100% re-printable

Waste is a major issue with temporary buildings. Aectual Bio Facades offer the solution: Simply return the facades after use, and we shred them and use the material for new 3D printed products. 100% recyclable!
