The Worlds First 3D Printed Temple in Telangana | SR News Update

Telangana is building the world's first Hindu temple made from 3D printed materials. This 3D printed temple, which is being built by Apsuja Infratech in an area of 3,800 square feet within Charvitha Meadows, a gated villa community at Burugupally in Siddipet. Simpliforge Creations, a 3D-printed construction company, has partnered with Apsuja Infratech for the project. Read more below on SURFACES REPORTER (SR):

The creation of 3D-printed Hindu temple was announced yesterday, a day before Telangana's formation day. Telangana celebrates its formation day on June 2.

In March, Simpliforge Creations partnered with Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad to construct India's first prototype bridge in an impressive two hours at the Charvitha Meadows, Siddipet. The concept and design that underwent load testing and evaluation before its functional use were credited to Prof K V L Subramaniam and his research group from Civil Engineering Department of IIT Hyderabad. Today, the bridge is being used as a pedestrian bridge in the temple garden, according to Dhruv Gandhi, CEO of Simpliforge Creations.

Remarkable 3D Printed Hindu Place of Worship

This remarkable 3D printed Hindu temple in Telangana is certainly a captivating architectural feat. Spanning an impressive 3,800 sq.ft and towering at around 30 feet, its groundbreaking three-part design befits the holy trinity of deities it serves - Lord Ganesha is enshrined in a Modak or fig figure, Lord Shankar with his square abode and Goddess Parvati receives her own lotus-shaped sanctuary. Pioneering printing technology from Simpliforge has enabled this significant place of worship to become the first of its kind at such a scale worldwide.

The team is now tackling the lotus-shaped temple enshrining Goddess Parvati. Jeedipalli stated that phase II, which encompasses the lotus and tall spires (gopurams), is ongoing after successfully completing the Shivalay and the modak. Gandhi reported that manufacturing the dome-shaped modak took them roughly six hours over 10 days, but they are expecting to finish the lotus quicker thanks to what they learned from it.

Mr. Dhruv Gandhi, CEO of Simpliforge Creations, noted that it "demonstrates Simpliforge’s ability to print 51º and 32º in outward and inward cantilever respectively while printing in-situ and catering to architectural/aesthetic requirements". 

He went on to explain that the construction takes into account structural specifications, temple design principles, 3D printing requirements and the challenges of an in-situ build. 

Working on the dome-shaped modak presented a challenge, but the team was able to manage it within six hours over 10 days. Gandhi expressed hope that their learnings from this experience will allow them to finish the lotus earlier than expected. He went on to highlight that, with their Ganesha temple project, they have already demonstrated how 3D technology can achieve complex shapes that would otherwise be impossible through conventional methods. The successful completion of the lotus will once again highlight 3D printing's potential in the construction industry for the production of free-form structures.
