We are going to 3D print a fully functional, intricate steel bridge over water in the center of Amsterdam to showcase our revolutionary technology. MX3D equips industrial multi-axis robots with 3D tools and develops the software to control them. This allows us to 3D print strong, complex and gracious structures out of sustainable material – from large bridges to small parts. We research and develop groundbreaking, cost-effective robotic technology with which we can 3D print beautiful, functional objects in almost any form.
With the MX3D Bridge project we want to showcase the potential of our multi-axis 3D print technology. Tim Geurtjens, CTO MX3D: ” What distinguishes our technology from traditional 3D printing methods is that we work according to the ‘Printing Outside the box’ principle. By printing with 6-axis industrial robots, we are no longer limited to a square box in which everything happens. Printing a functional, life-size bridge is of course the ideal way to demonstrate the endless possibilities of this technique.”
We continuously research, develop and improve our technology together with our partners – the most innovative companies and institutes in hard- & software, construction and welding. Our MX3D’s engineers, craftsmen and software experts bring together digital technology, robotics and traditional industrial production in this Bridge project. The MX3D Bridge project would not exist without the support of partners, Autodesk, Heijmans, Arcelor Mittal, Air Liquide sponsors, ABB robotics, STV, Delcam, Within, Lenovo, public partners TU Delft, AMS, Amsterdam City Council.
