A local 3D-printing studio in Ghaziabad has captured the market with its meticulously crafted 3D-printed Ram Mandir replicas, demonstrating the versatility of 3D printing technology. This breakthrough represents a significant shift in the souvenir industry, which has traditionally been dominated by replicas of the Taj Mahal, Qutub Minar, India Gate, and Gateway of India.

The studio, which is led by Rahul Mahajan, a techie with a passion for 3D printing, has seen a surge in demand for these temple replicas, with sales increasing by more than 100% in the last six months.

Advanced 3D printing and laser cutting technologies are used in the production process to ensure that each replica has intricate details and a clean finish. “Creating a one-foot-long model of the Ram Mandir takes about five hours on one of our machines,” says Mahajan, emphasising the technology’s efficiency and precision.

“Our 3D-printed Ram Mandir replicas have virtually replaced all other souvenir items. The precision and quality offered by 3D printing technology have allowed us to create almost identical models of the temple, which are now dominating the souvenir gifting market.”

– Rahul Mahajan, a local 3D-printing studio owner in Ghaziabad

With Prime Minister Narendra Modi set to participate in the upcoming “pran pratishtha” ceremony at the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, demand for these replicas is expected to rise even further. The temple, a stunning example of Nagara architectural style, measures 380 feet long, 250 feet wide, and 161 feet tall, with 392 pillars and 44 gates.

This advancement demonstrates the growing influence of 3D printing technology in a variety of industries, including arts, crafts, and souvenir manufacturing. It is a significant milestone for the 3D printing industry, demonstrating the technology’s potential for creating culturally significant and intricate designs with high precision and efficiency.
