Arc 3D-Printed Stainless Steel Bicycle

Four Dutch students of TU Delft have designed and built a fully functional 3D printed stainless steel bicycle as part of a three-month research project. The frame of the bicycle was designed to demonstrate the potential of the MX3D method for 3D printing metal.

From the designers, “The project was realized in collaboration with MX3D, an R&D start up in Amsterdam, who specializes in Robotic Additive Manufacturing. The company has developed a ground breaking method for using multi axis robotic arms as 3D printers. This allows metals and resins to be printed mid-air in any direction without the need for support structures. The company made world news last year when it released plans to 3D print a steel pedestrian bridge in Amsterdam. Through the 3D Building FieldLab, MX3D invited the students to studie and experiment with the many aspects of this innovative digital fabrication technology.”
