This Robot Is Going to Print in 3D a Whole Bridge Steel

So far 3D printing formed part has been gradually in various disciplines in pursuit of lower costs and always have available tools or items of almost immediately. This is how we have seen the participation of 3D printing in fields such as medicine and more recently in the space, among many others.

But today, thanks to a project developed by the company MX3D, 3D printing is a major step towards the large scale objects through materials that will enable a variety of structures give us support and durability for several years.

Printing a bridge of steel in the air

The MX3D project is the manufacture of robots that are able to build a pedestrian bridge over one of Amsterdam’s canals, but with the peculiarity that these robots as well as build, also they are able to print the structure in 3D.

Each robot will have a versatile six-axis arm that in turn may “draw and manufacture” the steel structure in 3D. Work starts on one side of the canal until you reach the other end, the interesting thing is that the robot also printed their own support to thus work independently

The project managers mentioned that to reach this robot had to break many paradigms created in 3D printing, for example, all printers work inside a box, so with these robots for the first time take the print out of that box through the possibilities that bring the robotic arms.

Joris Laarman, Designer at MX3D mentions:

“The symbolism of the bridge is a beautiful metaphor for connecting technology of the future with the cities of the past, in a way that brings the best of both worlds.”

In the coming weeks will be the location of the bridge and expected construction to start at the beginning of 2017.
