Town 'Printed' In Ipswich To End Up In Morocco

Ipswich MoroccoAn Ipswich man, from the newly formed Anglia-Mahgreb Smart City company, plans to 3D print an entire model city and transport it to north Africa.

Frank Domoney, CEO the Anglia-Mahgreb Smart City company, invited Suffolk Euro MP Alex Mayer to print out the first car for his model city at the Ipswich Waterfront Innovation Centre University of Suffolk.

Mr Domoney says he will print full 3D scale models of houses, cars and park benches from photographs taken in Ipswich to construct a full working model of a city, which he will then install in the Moroccan capital of Rabat.

Mr Domoney has been given the use of an old car park by the City of Rabat to construct his model. Once complete his the car park will be transformed to a smart city that will allow government officials and city planners to test out transport systems, plan traffic flows and housing.

Alex Mayer MEP said: “Best of luck to Frank. It is great to see the facilities at the Ipswich Waterfront Innovation Centre being used for such a unique project. I hope that many small parts of Ipswich end up in Morocco.”
