Copyright © 2017 by the Association for Computing Machinery, Inc. (ACM). We demonstrate TrussFab, an end-to-end system that allows users to fabricate large-scale structures that are sturdy enough to carry human weight. TrussFab achieves the large scale by complementing 3D print with plastic bottles. It does not use these bottles as "bricks" but as beams that form structurally sound structures, also known as trusses, allowing it to handle the forces resulting from scale and load.
