How to start a 3D printed steel bridge project? Peek behind the scenes in this video. Watch an experiment with a robot, welding machine and advanced software at work to turn a little metal blob into an ambitious project.

Our aim is to 3D print the first bridge in the world. Yes, really! An intricate, functional, pedestrian bridge of stainless steel, fabricated by MX3D robots over one of the oldest canals in the city of Amsterdam. And we want to share the process with you.

3D printing allows us to escape the rigid geometric form-language dictated by industrial machinery. This means that we can integrate smart complex structures and ornaments specifically developed for any given location.
