MX3D – 3D Printed Bridge over Canal

Header image: MX3D – 3D Printed Bridge over Canal

We are MX3D, a company that researches and develops groundbreaking robotic 3D print technology. Our robots print sustainable materials such as metals and synthetics in virtually any size or shape. Our engineers, craftsmen and software experts bring together digital technology, robotics and traditional industrial production. One of our productions is a 3D printed bridge.

With the use of industrial multi-axis robots MX3D is going to 3D print a fully functional, intricate steel bridge over water in the center of Amsterdam to showcase their revolutionary technology. By printing with 6-axis industrial robots, you are no longer limited to a square box in which everything happens. This bridge will show how 3D printing finally enters the world of large-scale, functional objects and sustainable materials while allowing unprecedented freedom of form. Creating this functional, life-size 3D printed bridge will demonstrate the endless possibilities of this technique.

Possibilities

We believe that we are at the beginning of a revolution: digital design and fabrication are changing rapidly. The possibilities are endless. MX3D is a highly innovative company that developed a groundbreaking additive manufacturing method.  In 2014 we invented an affordable multiple axis 3D printing tool. We equipped an industrial robot with an advanced welding machine and developed software to control it.  We can 3D print metals and also resin in mid-air, without the need for support structures. With our MX3D Bridge project we will showcase how digital fabrication is finally entering the world of large scale, functional objects made of durable materials.

Innovation

In order to innovate, we research and develop our technique continuously. For this we found the perfect R&D partners and sponsors. Together we are ready to 3D print the first fully functional steel bridge in the world to put our revolutionary technology to the test. We offer creative robotic manufacturing solutions that we believe will transform Arts and Industry. Digital manufacturing like this is still unexplored territory and leads to a new form language, an aesthetic freedom.  And it might transform processes at construction sites as they are now.
