The progressive construction of the new mosque was directed by a Saudi Arabian businesswoman named Wajnat Abdulwahed, in memory of her late husband.

5,600 square meter mosque was completed in just six months under his leadership at Forsan Real Estate, using four advanced printing machines from Guanli, the Chinese company world-renowned for its technology called 3D printing.

3D printing or additive manufacturing is the construction of a three-dimensional object from a CAD model or a digital 3D model. It uses cybernate documents to create solid objects by placing sequential material layers.

This innovative approach stands in stark contrast to traditional casting and engraving methods, which typically waste over 90% of the raw materials used in their manufacturing process.

In her press release, Mrs. Abdulwahed stated:

“As a Saudi businesswoman, I wanted to contribute to introducing this modern technology to the Kingdom, making it one of the leading countries in the world to utilize it first. The idea came to fruition by building a mosque dedicated to the memory of my late husband, which then became the first mosque in the world built using 3D printing technology.”

Wajnat became prominent as a prime person in using 3D printing technology to build mosques in Saudi Arabia, forcing the boundaries of innovation and growth.

Not only did she successfully create prototype buildings using this revolutionary technology, but she also precisely tested the printer’s results to make sure they meet strict city and regulatory standards of environmental regulations in Saudi Arabia, thereby ticking off an important landmark in this field.

This grand project demonstrates the enormous strength of cutting-edge technology to rebuild architectural rituals, actively devoting to transforming the national economy and enhancing the non-oil local content, aligned with the earnest goals of Saudi Vision 2030.
