THE FUTURE IS HERE! You’ll never believe how they’re going to build this bridge in Amsterdam

It’s been fascinating to watch what people are using 3D printers to make, but in Amsterdam they just raised the bar. ¬†They are attempting to make a bridge[1]. Yes, an actual bridge.


“We research and develop groundbreaking, cost-effective robotic technology with which we can 3D-print beautiful, functional objects in almost any form,” wrote MX3D on the project Web page. “The ultimate test? Printing an intricate, ornate metal bridge for a special location to show what our robots and software, engineers, craftsmen and designers can do.”

The bridge will be designed by artist and designer Joris Laarman, who helped develop the Mataerial 3D printer — or MX3D-Resin — and the MX3D-Metal, a robotic 3D printer that combined the MX3D-Resin with a welder to be able to “draw” fast-setting metal structures.

You can watch more about what they are planning to do below. It’s the future of tomorrow, today!
