Dutch Company Plans to 3D-Print Bridge (Video)

October 20, 2015

Dutch company MX3D developed a way to 3D-print with metals such as steel, aluminum and copper, reports Manufacturing.net. The company is planning to use the technology to produce a bridge spanning a canal in Amsterdam.

MX3D’s bridge will be built during the fall of 2017 and will be made of a new steel composite developed at the University of Delft. Two robots provided by robotics company ABB, along with welding tooling provided by Air Liquide will be used to heat up the metal to 2,732°F before welding the structure.
