India's First 3D-Printed Post Office Inaugurated by Union Railways Minister

New Delhi - On Friday, Ashwini Vaishnaw, the Union Railways Minister, inaugurated India's maiden post office created with 3D printing technology. The unveiling of this innovative 1,100 square feet post office took place in Bengaluru's Cambridge Layout, adjacent to Ulsoor Bazaar.

Vaishnaw remarked, "This 3D-printed technology presents a novel facet of India's progress. It's incredible how India has ventured into developing its own 4G and 5G technology. Similarly, we have become creators and manufacturers of cutting-edge telecom technology. The nation's ability to design and produce world-class trains was also unforeseen."

In response to the inauguration, Prime Minister Narendra Modi conveyed his admiration through the microblogging platform X (previously Twitter), stating, "Every Indian would be proud to see India's first 3D printed Post Office at Cambridge Layout, Bengaluru. A testament to our nation's innovation and progress, it also embodies the spirit of a self-reliant India. Compliments to those who have worked hard in ensuring the Post Office's completion."

The application of 3D printing technology is swiftly gaining traction in the realm of construction. This technique employs computer-aided design to construct three-dimensional objects in a layer-by-layer manner.

Around a year ago, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati achieved a significant feat by successfully creating a sentry post using 3D printing methods for the Indian Army. This accomplishment was a result of a domestic research and development initiative.
