MX3D Bridge

Featured image

We are creating an innovative metal 3D printing technology with a high deposition rate and almost unlimited building enveloppe. To show what our technology is capable of we are 3D printing a 12 meter stainless steel bridge for the City of Amsterdam.


What is the goal of the project?

Joris Laarman Lab developed a new technique to 3D print its art objects big, fast and economical. Located at the NDSM Ship wharf in Amsterdam, MX3D has found partners willing to support its latest project: 3D printing a bridge for Amsterdam. Partners are: Autodesk, ArcelorMittal, Lenovo, ABB, Arup, Airliquide.

Aspects of the project
We generate healthy revenue with the creation of art objects. The second aspect of our business is realizing the bridge. In the meantime we do R&D to develop our 3D printer to a level third parties can make good use of them.

What is the result of the project?

Placing a 12-meter long stainless steel 3D printed bridge over the Oudezijds Achterburgwal in Amsterdam.

Who initiated the project and which organizations are involved?

The project is initiated by Heijmans, Autodesk, Arup, Lenovo, ABB, AMS institute, TUDelft, Municipality of Amsterdam.

What is the next step?
