3D Printing a Steel Bridge

3D printing began largely in a fashion similar to ink-jet printers, with extrusion nozzles spraying plastics and resins into three dimensional configurations controlled by detailed computerized drawings. It has advanced to using metals and lasers and welding techniques. A company called MX3D that specializes in using robotic welding machines with additive manufacturing is demonstrating their abilities by printing a steel bridge across a canal in Amsterdam.

MX3D is to 3D print a steel bridge. Really.

With our robots that can “draw” steel structures in 3D, we will print a bridge over water in the center of Amsterdam. We research and develop groundbreaking, cost-effective robotic technology with which we can 3D print beautiful, functional objects in almost any form. The ultimate test? Printing an intricate, ornate metal bridge for a special location to show what our robots and software, engineers, craftsmen and designers can do.
