The 3-D printed coral on Summer Island
Posted on: 5/3/2021, 9:58:12 AM
Coral fragments that were transplanted to the reef in early 2020 have risen to the size of a football. Coral fragments were transplanted onto an artificial coral that had been assembled. The coral was recently recognized as the world's first 3-D printed reef system, earning it a Guinness World Record. The majority of the pieces were unable to adhere to the current arrangement.
The scale of coral development on the 3-D reef amazed the Summer Island dive team. Reef Design Lab expects to return to Summer Island next year to build a new installation using 3D printing to add to the existing coral fragment array. The business is headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, and specializes in using cutting-edge technologies to build systems that promote the growth of corals and mangroves. Algae must be removed from the coral on a daily basis.
Summer Island Maldives is one of the Maldives' first resorts. The resort is on the island of Ziyaaraifushi, which is part of the North Malé atoll. A 3-D rendering of Summer Island is now on display at the prestigious Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA) The resort earned the coveted Holiday Check Gold Award for being one of the most famous resorts in the Maldives recently. Velana International Airport is a 40-minute speedboat ride away.
