MX3D’s 3D Printed Bridge Project Takes One More Step Closer to Completion

MX3D’s 3D Printed Bridge Project Takes One More Step Closer to Completion

In Amsterdam, as the Oudezijds Achterburgwal canal winds through the city, a series of more than 1,000 bridges are in place to help pedestrians get from one side to the other. One of those bridges is a temporary structure, made of concrete and unattractive with graffiti scribbled along its sides. Soon, this bridge will be replaced […]

3D Printed Steel Pedestrian Bridge On Track for Amsterdam Installation in 2018, Research Team To Test and Analyze Structure

There are concrete 3D printed bridges, and bridges 3D printed out of modified plastic. Now, we’re one step closer to seeing a first-of-its-kind bridge built by robots and 3D printed using stainless steel. Netherlands-based startup MX3D, which develops robotic additive manufacturing technology and created the Wire and Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) method, got started on the ambitious […]

Chinese Bridge Sports New, Extra-Strength 3D Printed Railings

Chinese Bridge Sports New, Extra-Strength 3D Printed Railings

In the Chinese city of Nanjing, a well-traveled bridge was deemed unsafe – namely, its railings weren’t stable enough. According to Li Jin, Chairman of Nanjing Jiayi Precision Machinery Manufacturing Co., Ltd, replacing the railings using traditional means would have taken at least a month. If you’ve had to deal with bridge construction on any of […]

World’s First Robotic 3D Printed Modified Plastic Footbridges on Display at Tongji University

World’s First Robotic 3D Printed Modified Plastic Footbridges on Display at Tongji University

When we talk about 3D printed bridges, they’re usually made out of heavy construction materials, like concrete or steel. But recently, Tongji University’s College of Architecture and Urban Planning (CAUP) unveiled the first robotic 3D printed bridges, which were made using modified plastic. The two black footbridges, which span 4 meters and 11 meters, graced the […]

European Institutions to Gather in Copenhagen for a Look at How 3D Printing is Disrupting Construction

Since the very beginning of our species, humans have been required to find ways to shelter themselves from weather and predators. We’ve been wonderfully creative and resourceful in terms of making use of our surroundings – we may have started out by sheltering in natural structures like caves, but once we developed tools, we started using […]
